George cortnty on Montbiy. a»e 
last day of the season. All told 
seven deer fell to their guns dur- 
ing the seasoh. 

Cecil Sawyer, of the Court 
House, and F. C. Odell. of London 
Bridge, made the kills on Mon- 
day. They were membe^-ef a 
party of about fifteen, nearly all 
of whom were from the county, 
which ht&ted aa the cloehig day. 

Am(mg others in the party, 
which went to Prince George in 
^ur, ears, were Hoy Bonney, W. 
A. Cox, Jr., W. C. Peyton, J. B. 
Murden, C. H. HoUoweU, H. C. N. 
Batten, Moses Flanagan, Emmer- 
son Land, John James, John Pat- 
ter and E. A. Smith. 

Only three shots were fired on 
Monday, the poor marksman be- 
ing a Norfolk guest. He was per- 
mitted to lietum home with his 
shirt tailr however. Tb» game waa 
butchered at the . Murden store, 
at Loiidcni Bridge, when the hunt- 
ers returned! and was divided 
among theni^ The bucks dressed 
aliout 100 potfnds each. 

Ttie Princti^ Anne mef^ have

Brandon estate. The oWn- 
ed by w)b. Taylor, of Lynnhaveri. 
They secured exclusive hunting 
privileges this season on the prop- 
erty, which also has turkey and 
Quall. Hunting parties went frott 
Princess Anne to the property oi^ 
an average of once a week during 
the deer season, which opened 
November 15, and some from here 
probably will hunt turkey there 
this month. 

The deer have been hunted 
with the assistance of a pack of 
four dogs owned by a Prince 
George man named Shepherd. 
The dogs are reported to be well 

Others who have killed deer in

Only five counties In "WrgSIa 
last year made a better schopl at- 
tendance record than Prtneeas 
Anne, the annual 
State school 

Prindess Anne's attendance 
mark for the year was 94 per cent, 
an improvement of two per cent 
over the preceding year. The 
average for the Virginia system 
was 90 per cent, for cities 93 per 
cent and for counties 61 per cent. 

The Princess Anne attehdahce 
figure was equal to that in sev- 
eral large cities, amoqg them Nor- 
folk. Lynchburg and Roanoke. It 
was three per cent better than the 
Portsmouth figure.

Superintendent of S c h o q 1 •

at the showing made b;; the

'effort which has been made in 
recent years to keep school at-

be c(Hitinued here. Incidentally 
financial considerations are in- 
volved because State school funds 
are apportioned to localities on 
the basis of attendance, not en- 
rollment. \ 

it is difficuj|^ to obtahi as ^o(^

interferes more with children go- 
ing to school than it does in cities. 
However, we have a good school 
bus system in this county and 
that is one of the reasons why at- 
tendance here is well above the 

But school attendance figures 
everywhere are rising, Mr. Cox 
pointed out. 

"C%ildren like to go to tcbotA 
more than they once did because 
school work has been made more

"Schools are doing a great deal 
more to interest th ei r pup il s t han

than one pupil tell me, during

The National Park Service, re- 
ports the State Commission on 
Conservation and Development, 
has determined to deepen Long 
Creek so that Linkhom and Broad 
Bays will be provided with a bet- 
ter outlet to Lynnhaven Inlet, 
llils improvement was among the 
objectives of the Committee of 
100 which was formed here in the 
•ummer of 1933 and it is import-- 
ant to the progress of this section. 
Let us hope that it will be follow- 
ed by the other improvements 
sought by the Committee of 100, 
among them the deepening of the 
mouth of Lynnhaven river. 

The freer flow of tide in Broad 
and Linkhom Bays which will 
follow the Long Creek dredging 
will assist in the fight being made 
l^alnst the mosquito In the 
marshes of those enclosed waters 
•nd It will increase their useful- 
ness to yachtsmen. It also will 
give the oyster a new lease of life 
ttiere though the «value of Link- 
horn^ lUMi Broad bays-ar-oystef 
jfround has, in this paper's opin- 
ion, been overestimated by the 
State Health Department. > 

The greatest value of the dredg- 
itig reported to be authorized 
aeems to the News to be the im- 
petus which will be given to 
yachting. The waters back of Vir- 
ginia Beach are a singularly at- 
trMtlve haven for small craft. But 
they have been inaccessible, ex- 
cept to light draft boats, because 
both Long Creek and Lynnhaven 
Xolet are shallow. The National 
Park Service's determination to 
remove one of these two barrlera 
diould encourage this section to 
oontinue Ite efforts to have the 
other eliminated. Keeping Lynn- 
haven's sand— choked- mouth open 
will be more costly than deepen- 
ing L(mg Creek but on the other 
hand it would be anJ|iprovement 
important to more i^ple because

One after another of the great 
motor ear manufacturers are\ an- 
nouncing their 193S models. In 
most cases power has been in- 
creased and even the cheapest of 
the nl;w cars will be capable of 
speed above 75 miles an hour. 
Though brakes are being im- 
proved each year, andilie genial 
factor of safety in motor car con- 
struction is increasing, the speed 
possibilities of the modem car 
offer amazing new opportunities 
for homicide and suicide to the 
reckless driver. 

Tliese- cars will be dangerous 
when .^operated at the higher 
speeds of which they are capable 
by drivers who are mentally alert 
and physically fit. But many who 
will drive them are in neither 
category. Recently an investiga 
tion was niiade at Detroit into 
the fitness of the drivers involved 
in 100 accidents. One ISt these 
drivers ww insane, twelve wert 
feeble-minded, 42 were of low in- 
telligence, one was epileptic, three 
were physically handicapped, 
four were color blind, fourteen 
had other serious defects in vision 
and the hearing of seven was de- 
fective. It is this sort of people 
w^o will bum up our roads in 
80 mlle-an-hoiir cars. • 

America has tried Jo obtain 
highway safety^ by constructing 
better roads. Motorists nullified 
that improvement by^ driving 
faster over the better highways. 
The nation has endeavored to re- 
duce accidents by imposing speed 
restrictions. Something has been 
accomplished by that but speed 
limits have never stopped speed- 
ing and never will. Various

Those who inspected the famous 
English railway train at the Cen- 
tury of Progress, where it stbdd 
in striking contrast With the 
streamlined Diesel engine trains 
considered the last word In de- 
signing in this country, read with 
interest that the famous "Flying 
Scotman" in England hils set a 
new speed record. The train of 
an engine and four coaches ran 
from {jondon to Leeds, 186 miles, 
in 151 .minutes. 

No doubt the trial of speed was 
staged by Brittoh railway intereste 
as a reply to critics Who were 
potot^g to recent achievemente 
of trains of . newer design in 
America and Germany. It to 
characteristic of EngUsh conser- 
vatism to cling to that which has 
proved good until the new has 
demonstrated its superiorit^r. 

Audi the Engltoh railways are

up speed records, but they con- 
tinuaUy prove their correctness by

due to the economy of using cars 
and engines ctf relatively light

may adopt the Diesel-driven eng- 
ines and the streamline trains, 
but they wlH be content with a 
good service while ralbqads in 
Germany, HoUand and the United 
States are experimenting. 

The nationar loti|ries of other 
countries are based upon this ap-

Northera Passage May Yet 
Become Commercially Im- 

The Frozen North, where Santa 
Claus has legendarily held mono- 
poly of trade routes, is being in- 
vaded with steady progress by 
Soviet trade. 

Farther and farther north. 
Soviet explorers have penetrated, 
doing path-finding work and feel- 
ing their way toward establish- 
ment of safe routes forshipping. 

As a result of this /pioneering, 
icy seas north of Siberia have al- 
ready been criss-crossed in part 
by trade routes. Soviet ships now 
move iiiv^slow annual caravans in 
the wake of ice breakers, from 

Vladivostok westwards and fp 
Eurcqiean ports eastward, headed 
for estuaries of Siberian rivers. 
Parts of the Soviet Northern Pas- 
sage have thus become \ almost 
commonplace routes,, considering 
ordinary insurance risks. 

Now.^the conquest of the Soviet 
North has taken another step to- 
ward. Voyaging of the full sweep 
of the Northern Passs^. 6,000 
miles of difficult -savigating 
across the "top" of Europe and 
Asia, has passed the experimental 
stage. So it appears from the 
latest achievement. 

The Northern Passage had been 
navigated in one season, from 
Archangel to Europe all, the way 
to Vladivostok in Asia, in 1932 by 
the ice-breaker Sibiryakov under 
Captain O. J. Schmidt. The feat 
was almost repeated to 1933 by 
the "Cheliuskto" which got as far 
as Bering Strait and then, before 
it could round the Bering Sea and

Now, this year, the Ice-breaker 
Theodor Utke, commanded by 
C^ptato Nikiolayev, reversed the 
Journey. For the first time to 
history, a ship completed the 
westbound voyage from Vladivo- 
stok to Murmansk in one nayiga- 
tion season. The voyage of 6,000 
miles was a voyage through solid 
ice for 1.500 miles of the way.. It 
took eighty-three days. 

The Litke, on its way. released 
from ice three ships that sailed 
the precedtog year to the estuary 
of the River Lena and were over- 
taken by winter there. Sh|^dso 
took to tow a river steamstalp and 
transferred it from on^Cjriv^ to 

Professor Wiese, in charge of 
scientific tovestigation for the ex- 
pedition leaitied that there is a 
warm current from the Pacific to 
the Chukotsk Sea, aa well as a 
cold current from the northwest. 
Samples of ice were taken for 
analysis along the entire Passage. 
When the explorer Nordenskiold 
succeeded to voyaging from Ooth- 
ehburg. Swedeo. to Japan by the 
northern route to two navigation 
seasons in 1878-1879, he proved 
that a ship couki ftod its way 
~ -aertwa ttw-tep-of-Aeiar- B ut he -^ 
concluded that the route could 
hardly be of importemce for trade. 
Now, that verdict, long accepted, 
may be revised.

Making The Home More LivMel 

— Wirfi Endrlamp^im^h^Dayenpon 

DID you ever notice how your fam- 
ily or guests graviute toward the 
davenport when entering the living 
room? They usually do. 

So it's really not surprising how 
much pleasure and livableneu nn be 
secured by adding, as per^ compte- 
ments to the davenport, good knqw— 
properly placed I 

Like an artist with a paltet (rf paints, 
a home maker with a da vefM^ott, lamps 
and end tables, can create a batanced 
arrangement that is beautiful to the 
eye— and more than that— good to 
the eyefrtmi the standpoiirt ol Kghthig. 

How to go about ft when oneS 
davenport is placed against a wall is 
illustrated in the accwnpanytng riRtch. 

Although the Ump arrangemmt 
looks casually and graceiully sim^ 
It embodies several technically correct 
things over which a ItghtiiHI ^Mcklist 
would nod hit Jiead in ^proval.

You will be amased how an odd 
slant or angle will make an In- 
teresting picture of a coipmonplace 
scene. lAe to many dther Vht^gs we 
do day after day. we ran eaaly get 
into a rut in taking pIctureB. Usual- 
ly we Uke Just the normal, conven- 
tional vlew-^Btralght at the subject 
— as If It were a sacred rule of pic- 

tiirihpiaRTng to do tbrsrinnw m 
all neceaaary to take pictures that 
way every time. Variety Is the spice 
of live photography! 

Street scenes— the* scurrying 
crowds, the repair gang at work, the 
trafflc Jam — are usually more atrlk- 
Ing If uken from a high level. We 
are, of course, familiar with the re- 
verse view — the it^lcturea of sky- 
acrapera with the eabiera pointed di- 
rectly up. The buildings appear to 
be leaning backwards and abbut to 
topple off their toundatlons Surb 
ptrtures are frankly Intended to be 
bizarre distortions, but If you like 
th*m, by all means "shoot" them 
Some of them will at'leaft be funny 

t*ftrade arenea are effective If the 
camera la held low, or on the ground, 
tor you will ,get tbe effect of ttet 
marching Intd the camera— realism 
This applies, too, in taking picture* 
of runninft or trotting races. 

Swimmlnft pictures are better If 
the camera I* at a high level and you 
"shoot" almost directly down on the 
subject" From thle angle yon get 
the rippica of the water and the Mirht 
playing on them Another out of the 
<vrdtnaTy'<Alctnfe Is that of action on 
a toboggaiMllde. such as you see at 
bathing beaches arid amnnement 
parks. Get aet with yom camera at 
a high lev^ within range <^ the spM 
wliere the tobog^n strikes tiie wa- 
ter. When yw «Mp tbe pletars yM 

Indhrlduallty caa bs 
shown In your snap* 
shots by taking soms 
of them at odd anglas. 
Sueh pleturss are often 
mvish mor«attrm<lv« 

than eonvi]itT«ini^ 

straloht-on visws., 

will get a fantastic and attractive 
effect as tbe water splashes -high 
above the occupants. Slides In swim- 
ming peolB or at the beach offer the 
aama opportunity as tbe batbers 
strike the waUr. But if you are dos* 
up, be snre and don't let tba water 
splash OB the lens of your camera. 

Winter offers eiceptlonally flne 
tf^pOT^ntres for ptciurOaiiliimr 
odd angles. For Instance, there la 
the old fBlll and the mill pond hidden 
In the summer by the foliage of the 
willows. You can't get It at any an- 
gle. But in the winter from high op 
on the hill you can get tbe full pic- 
ture. Old Jack FroBt and King Win- 
ter solve many picture problems by 
removing the leaves and the chances 
for getting artistic effects are often 
much more In your favor than in tbo 

In suggesting that you take some 
of your pictures from high levels. It 
does not necessarily mean that yon 
should be on a balcony or on top of, 
a building every time. You can perch 
on a chair, a fence, or the top of your 
automobile, and get perspective* 
that will make attractively distinc- 
tive pictures 

But all picturea do not lend tbeiB- 
selves to thia type of photi^raphy «> 
don't make It a habit You would get 
some queer results sometlmeB Joat

"I frMi Oiat the bald eagle had 
■ot been eboaen as the represent-

wrote hit daughter back in 17M. 
"Be kt ft bird of mrey irf bad moral 
eiarfteter; he does not get his 
Bvlng honestly; you may have 
seen fatan perdied on some dead 
tree, where, too lazy t6 f isb for 
Unaelf , he watdies the labor of 
tbe ftahlng-l^awk, and when that 
dO^eitt Urd has at length taken 
ft fish, aaA is bluing it to his nest 
for the support of his mate and 
young ones, the bald eagle pur- 
sues him and tidies it from hhn 
. . . Uke those among men who> 
live by duurping and robbing, he 
is generally poor and often very 
bnisy. Besi^, he is a rank 
coward; the little kingbird, not 
iMgger than a qwrrow, attacks 
him boldly said drives him <nit of 
the dlsttiet." Franklin suggested 
the turk^ as a more honorable 
American emblem. 
Now Dr. Herrick has devoted 
-years to study of the American 
eagle, has built wooden and steel 
towers to watch its nests and dili- 
gently studied available eagle lit- 
erature aiul tradition, and he of- 
fers an Impassioned brief in the 
eagle's defense. (But da not, in 
Herrlek's hearing, ihake Frank- 
lln,'s mistake of referring to the 

* Wr# as a "bald eagle.;* "Bald" in 
^itfie eighteenth centu^, when oiur 

eagle got hisname, meant "white;" 
and the American eagle may 
Ittoperly be called, as he used to 
be. bald^aded. but not "bald." 
Only his head atid tail are white; 
and the young are generally 

A Defense of the National Emblem 
"The fathers of our country 
ipade no mistake," says Dr. Her- 
llck. "The American eagle is the 
only one peculiar to the United 
States; he is a true 'native son,' 
being found only on the continent 
ot North America, which he has 
never been Jcnowxi to leave of his 
own volition, unless a few may 
have strayed across Bering Strait 
into Siberia. He nests high, as 
liear to the sun as he can get, 
Uke ft true bird of Jove and mes- 
MOger of the star of day. He 4s 

• model parent and probably 
qiends more time— upward of six 
Bumths — ^in rearing his family 
■hd giving his progeny a fair start 
lll4ife than any other bird known 
liD this continent, if not to the 
world. He does not live entirely 
or mainly by 'robbing and sharp- 
ing,' but is an expert fisherman 
la his own right, and will not rob 
tile osprey unless this bird is 
hMdlesa hi giving him the chance, 
or, as it were, offers him chal- 
lenge. Above all, the eagle is no 
rank coward. He is never driven 
ffom the neighborhood by the 
ttttle kingbird or any other living 
being ejtcepting a man armed 
wltti a gun." . . , ^^^-. 

Thirty-five years ago Mr. Uer- 
rlek, then professor of biology at 
Westent Reserve University, begui 
his study of the eagle; he has 
vlMted more thian twoscore of its 
eyries, lived in a tent in a treetop 
doeer to its home, probably, than 
ftny other man; he has even slept

AmMteftn eagle attacking human 
children seems to be well authen- 
ticated. One eagle n«st Included 
not tnHy the bmies of moArats 
but fourteen steel muArat traps. 
A prairie nest was built op^ with 
buffalo ribs instead of sticks. 

KIngMrds annoy eagto as little 
as flies, acecmling to Mr. Her- 
rlek's obeervatiMis. The only 
birds that bothered them were a 
pair Of bhie-gray gnatcatidiers, 
hardly larger than hummln? 
Urds, which objected when a 
mother eagle perched unccBnfort- 
ably near their nest. Crows were 
regarded 1^ the eagles as definite- 
ly obnoxious, and pursued, on gen- 
eral principles. On the other hand 
a pair of sparrows were permitted 
to build a nest under the eaves of 
the Oreat Eyrie, scnne fifty species 
were seen in the eagle tree, and 
a red-headed woodpecker actually 
landed on the parapet of the nest, 
and unworried by the big eaglets, 
picked up a few choice bits <a 
eagle-down. and flew off. 

Both father and mother eagle 
broed; and both work hard to 
feed their offspring, even for sev- 
eral weeks after the young birds 
have learned to fly. The nest is 
big enough for the eaglets to do 
considerable playing and practice 
flying before launching off into 
space; unlike most smaller birds, 
the eaglets return to the home 
nest at night even after they have 
taken the dangerous leap and dis- 
covered that their wings actually 
worked. .

(Portsmouth Star) 
Announcement from Norfolk 
that radio . broadcasting of the 
hearing of traffic violations would 
begto next Wednesday in Judge 
R. B. Spindle's court in Norfolk 
"In an effort to interest the public 
In traffic problems and hazards 
prhnarily, but also to furnish an 
biteresthig broadcast for radio 
fans," strikes us as a highly Im- 
proper trespass uptm the private 
affairs of those who may be so 
unfortunate as to be hailed into 
court fot- traffic violations. 

If the violations of traffic rules 
were of such an all-embracing na- 
ture as to constitute a menace to 
the entUre radio listening public, 
there might be some excuse, for 

Mutt and Jeff 


its airing on the ether yraves. but 
traffic violations do not properly 
come under the classification of 
criminality in the accepted sense, 
and the broadcasting of hearings 
in Judge Spindle's court will only 
have a tendency to humiliate and 
embarrass those who receive the 
court summons. 

Courts of Justice are not proper 
settings for amusement of the 
public, and, with the traffic of- 
fenders in many cases being un- 
intentionally guilty or entirely 
ignorant of any offense whatso- 
ever, there is no reason why they 
should he subjected to further 
embarrassment of havhig them- 
selves pi^&«d on the air as crim- 
inals. K&. classes of people^ be- 
come at times • traffic violators, 
but they «re not criminals, and 

should ntrt be treated" as such. 
With equal reason, it may be said 
that, the trial of Juvenile tlelln- 
quency and domestic relations 
cases should be aired by radio 
broadcasting. There is ' Just as 
much, or probably more, crimin- 
ality involved, and from a stand- 
point of proving amusing and 
entertaining to a morbidly curious 
publR, they would "pertainly prove 
more interesting. 

We hope that the public of- 
ficials of Norfolk will consider 
more seriously the proprieties and 
rescind their action ih determin- 
ing to broadcast traffic casi^.

Advance figures show that the 
migratory waterfowl hunalng 
stamp, better known as tne "dock 
stamp." had returned $356,000 up 
to November 30 to the Postoffice 
Department for tranter to the 
Unit^ States Bureau of Biological 
Survey for the purchase and 
maintenance of waterfowl re- 
fuges, According to a bulletin of 
the American Game, Association. 
The stamps are still selling and 
it is believed the total sales for 
this shooting season will reach 
smnewhere between $750,000 and 
$1,000,000. ' 
^ -»_J&Lffll« knows hojir many water- i 
fowl hunters there""are"^"ar"tKe j

purchasers of the duck stamp will ' 
give one a fair idea. > 

When the seasons in all of the 
states will have closed and all re- 
turns from the sdj^ of the duck 
stamp are in, officials of the gov- 
ernment propose to put the total 
figure of sales into the known 
number of license hunters jn all 
the states, as soon as these re- 
turns are in. and learn the pro. 
portion of waterfowl hunters to 
upland gaifte hunters. 

Guesses, bas£d upon personal 
observation by veteran hunters, 
hold that not more than one out 
of seven hunters hunt migratory 
waterfowl. By this basis it has 
generally been estimated that the 
waterfowl stamp woiild return 
about $1,000,000 a year for build- 
ing nesting and resting refuges for

Pastor's Resignation Oc- 
casioned by Recent Death 
of His Father. 

Rev. A. L. Shumate, pastor of 
nret Batrtlst church, Virginia 
Be«u;h, has tendered his resigna- 
tion, effective the second Sunday 
in February. 

Mr. Shumate intends to temp- 
orarily leave the ministry in order 
to administer the estate of his 
father, L. D. Shumate, who died 
at Pearlsburg on January 3. The 
elder Shumate left a farm, and 
other property and named Rev. 
Shumate, and a brother, as execu- 
tors. The property requires care- 
ful management and, the family 
being jirtdely scattered, the duty of 
attending to it has fallen upon 
the Beach clergyman. Mr. and 
Mrs. Shumate will live near 
Pearlsburg in the house in which 
Mr, Shunu^te was reared. They 
expect to be there at least a year, 
Rev. Shumate said this week. 

"I am sorry tp leave my work 
here and the friends I have made 
here," he said, "but I see no way 
out of it." 

Mr. Shumate has b^ pastor 
of the church here a little over a 
year. Both he and Mrs. Shumate, 
who has been an active worker 
with Jroung people, have been 
popular with the congregation. 

Mr. Shumate's resignation was 
accepted on Wednesday night and 
a committee was named to draft 
resolutions expressing the congre- 
gaticm's regret. There will be a 
meeting of the board of deacons 
on Sunday to appoint a pulpit 
committee to select a successor.

principal, was elected chairman

board approved them. It had the 
right, in case it objected to them,

Compensation Board. All mem- 
bers voted in favor of accepting 
the amouhts allowed . excepting 
Supervisor William I%yne, who 
cast no vote.

Perhaps if the present pace of 
street cars isn't slow enough to 
enable a fellow to get In his read-

motorman's ear will help matters. 
This department;; trailing a street 
car in its ancient /Cnevrolet for 
several blocks on cJ^ngested Nor- 
folk streets, has suspected that 
some street car passenger told tlM 
motorman he had just begun 
"Anthony Adverse" and wanted to

"The old selfishhess of the

the chambers of commerce of 
Plorida, by trying to boost 
their own city and belittle 
Other communities, is gone. 
We have found that if we 
can't keep them In Tampa it 
ii a wise idea to route them 
to Miami, and give them as 
much information as possible 
about that city. It makes the 
tourist feel better toward us." 
Apparently they have learned 
MUethlng in Florida to which

Though Miss Richey's pioneer-

The way to prevent that is not the

tenths of Hhe news value from 
subsequent feminine aerial doings. 
Women henceforth wiU have to

So tne real news in Miss Rich-

in the performance itself but in 
the poiteibility that she may have

Evidently the movement which 
was begun here last year to stop 
city dealers from palming off 
oysters from heaven-only-knows-

In Tdhiti, South Sea island of 
romance, native girls will now be 
permitted to go about in as few 
clothes as their fancy dictates. 
The French Minister of Colonies, 
has revoked Tahiti's blue laws, 
which forbade near-nakedness. He 
did it because he felt Tahitlan 
flappers were not getting a square 
deal. American and English bath- 
ing beauties were being permitted 
to frolic in and about "the surf in 
mere wisps of wool. Why deny 
their brown-skinned sisters the 
same privelege? 

Why, indeed? But this French 
action is no trifling occurrence for 
it means the official repudiation 
of tha mi s s io n ar y notion that ttie 

first, and most important step, in 
saving heathen souls was putting 
petticoats and breeches upon the 
heathen. The first missionaries 
to the South Seas found Tahltians 
and all_ the other islanders, 
practically unclothed. They labor- 
ed for decades to remove those is- 
landers from the shadow of dam- 
nation by dressnlg them up. And 

^OW^ Oft'jLJUfSW VP»rg jaj ttay,^ i hntr 

la^r was crowned with success, it 
a|l goes for nothing. 

What a gigantic joke this is. 
The Tahltians didn't backslide, if 
you can call it that. It was the 
"civilized" West that undid the 
missionaries' work. We have Just 
discovered what the Tahltians 
learned 1000 years ago. that 
neither rdiglon nor morality is 
a matter of clothing. The Tahl- 
tians. if they have a mn^ of the 
ridiculous, must have dickered 
at us no end as they doffed the 
superfluous ^rments the mission- 
aries had persuaded them to don.

^ctory for seasonal merehants 
is Men in the recent decision oi 
the Florida Supreme c<Hurt Which 
held that the s^te tax upon itin- 
erant merchants-^^ cannot be ap- 
plied to those who open only dur- 
ing the winter season but who 
maintain permanent locations. 

This ai^lies with particular 
force to many high class plac^' 
at Miami Beach,^ w^ch open 
flsually for brily fottr or five 
months in the winter season. In- 
cluded are several branches of 
New York stores which, if the tax 
had been pressed upon them, 
would not have opened in Miannl 
Beach at all. 

In enforeing the law as he saw 
it. Comptroller J. M. Lee main- 
tained that it was up to the mer- 
chant to prote good faith by de- 
positing the. amount M the tax 
with the tax collector, and then, 
if he remained in business at the 
same location throughout the 
year, the tax would be refunded. 
There was no other way for the 
comptroller to enforce the law, 
and there can be no doubt that 
Lee is a Ia#-enforcer of the very 
first order. 

Naturally one of the stores, 
Greenleaf ^ Crosby, took the case 
to court. That body took the com- 
mon sense view that a merchant 
leasing property on an annual or 
semi-annual basis must be pre- 
sumed to be a permanent mer- 
chant, although the vagaries of 
seasonal demand dictated that 
actual sales should take place only 
a part of the year. , 

Now that the basis.^of taxing 
itinerant merchants 4s\st9hhsb- 
ed, those who do not fall within 
that category should benefit as 
the framers of the law contem- 
plated. In other words, those who 
by their permanence help support 
state, and local government must 
have preference over those who 
contribute little or no support, but 
who attempt to skim the cream 
from winter trade Ik^at is made 
possible by the very »<juaUty and 
excellence of that govef^ment.

I knew a lady, a very close rela- 
tive of mine, who had a piano, but 
i^ KSne aaeans she Imd never 
teamed to pl^y but one tune, in 
fact she could not play any ot 
the ready made tunes, so she 
made this tune up and called it 
"Pepper and Salt," and I think 
she 'pl£»ed this tune on all occa- 
dons whether mirthful or sublime, 
of couyse suit: 
other things to the occasion. 

I feel that today my letter will 
be a sort of pepper and salt af- 
fair, just kind of mixed, or, in fact 
I expect it will be so mixed, it 
will be just about like my home 
made pants that I used to wear 
when I was a kid, a person could 
never tell whether I was going or 
coming. ' 

I Sometimes think that every 
citizen of this county ought to 
write their coimty paper and tell 
them just what they think, just 
what is on their mind. It would 
do a lot of good. Possibly others 
think the same way, and some- 
thing might be started to get this 
county started on the right track, 
and election year, is a good time 
to start something. When I tried 
to get a job on the county pay 
^olllast year, I had people from 
all over the county who c^me to 
me and wanted to get up petitions 
for me. I told them that I thought 
it better not to do thj^; but this 
has put me to thinking, and I 
think^ I sh^l giye^ those friends 
the opportunity to Vote for me 
this year, and as they are located

I have very decided ideas as to 
how a campaign should be con- 
ducted. I feel that when a man 
runs for office he should come out 
in his county paper and announce 
his platform in a paid advertise- 
ment, and further that he should 
have this platform and statement 
of facts printed and placed in the 
hands of every voter, and let them 
decide the issue. I do not feel that 
a candidate should make a cam- 
paign from hoiise to house and 
worry people to death, I further 
feel that a candidate should speak 
before any civic organizations 
that request it and also at the 
political meetings hdd in the 
county. It will be some thontiis 
before I make my announcement; 
but when I do I shall come before 
the peo pl e and -show them that X 
shall save this county thousands 
of dollars if elected. 

The people in this county 
should think: they are the sup- 
reme power in this county, and 
every election year they delegate 
that supreme power to the »men 
they elect to office. The ^ople 
have the right to say who shall 
serve them. 

1 sincerely hope that there may 
be many aspirapts jfor every of- 
fice. That will be fine. There is 
plenty of room for everybody, no 
one -has got a monopoly on re- 
ligion or politics. 

I do not expect to run for Jus- 
tice of the Peace again. 

I thhik the poorer a man is, the 
better chance he will have in 
politics this year. 1 am .really so 
poor I can't lose. 

I trust that the people will make 
the Virginia Beach News political 
headquarters, that they will hold 
open discussion from now on un- 
til the primary ends M *H-

The thesiSi of this series of arti-

more definite social planning on 
a local, state, and national scale, 
and that such planning must be 
guided by more general knowledge 
of present conditions and trends 
as - w eB-as by ma rc- g g"wal ap-

given conditions and of socially 
desirable goals. The iacts.present-

from the censu^Ttnd other gov-

In the long run, such planned

According to a recent report 78 
per cent of the white schocfl-^age 
population of Princess Anne 
county were_^lh daily attendance 
as compared to an average of 67 
per cent for all the coutnles and 
81 per cent for all the (!ltles, Par- 
allel figures for the Negroes were 
42 per cent for Princess Annie 
county, with 52.2 per cent for all 
the counties and 76^ per cent for 
the cities. In Princess Anne coun- 
ty, 51 per cent of the white 16 
and 17 age group were attending 
school as compared to 48.3 per 
cent in the rural areas of the state 
as a whole. In Princess Anne 
county, 53.6 per cent of the white 
high school p(jpulatlon (14 to 17 
age group) were reported as en- 
rolled In high school as compared 
to an average of 37.8 per cent for 
all counties, while 27.8 per cent 
graduated and 36.3 per cent of the 
graduates went to college. Paral- 
lel figures for all counties were 22 
and 28.9 per cent respectively 
Insufficient Trteparatlon 

More than double as large a 
percentage of the yoimg people In 
the cities are enrolled In high 
school as in the coimtry. This 
situation bodes lU for the future 
of country life and for rural youth 
who seek employment in the cities. 
It also makes the question of 
special trahiing for country life 
all the more Important. Approxi- 
mately one white farm boy in 12 
and one white rural glrljn 10 are 
enrolled in 4-H club work while 
almost one farm boy In 6 and a 
little more than one rural girl In 
10 of the white 14-18 age gniup 
are enrolled in high school agri- 
culture or home econwnlcs. In 
Princes Anhe county 42 per cent 
of the white farm boys of clutf 
age and 19,7 per cent of the rural 
girls are enr olled In 4-H club w ork 
and 20 per-ceiit of tKe boys 
taking high school agriculture. 
Where there are Negro county and 
home agents are teachers erf voca- 
tional agricultup or home econo- 
mics, the percentage of Negro 
youth enrolled In Uiese types of 
work is about the same or a little 
better than with the whites. Many 
Negro youth, however, do n<rt have 
access to such advantages.

The average per pupil cost of 
instruction and fcMr (^lerating ^pd 

the Negroes as compared to $174 
and $64 In the cities. 

Part of the differences between 
rural and urban school suppcMi: 
indicated ab<we is traceable to tAe 
fact that the per capita wealth of 
the cities is approximately three 
times as much as in the country, 
and the town dwellers receive ap- 
proximately double as large a 
proportion of the state's annual 
uicuine a s^.theif rural"' brethfenT 
Such discrepancies will continue 
as long as the towns have such 
advantages in education. 

In order for the school children 
to do good work they must be 
in good physical condition^" In 
1932-33 45 per cent of the school 
children of Princess Anne county 
were reported as five-pointers as 
cf(»)pared to a state average of 23 
per cent. 

Many of the condition's in- 
dicated above cannot be consider- 
ed satisfactory. The standards 
cm^^ rai^edJjcu. jno5t.-eas«9-44f- 
g^ls a step or two in advance of 
pifesent conditions are set and 
consistantly striven for. 

Are the local leaders of Princess 
Anne coumty doing ' everything 
possible to secure a high percent- 
age of high school attendance, a 
large 4-H clUO'' Enrollment, ad- 
eciuate school' support, and phy- 
sical defects corrected? Are they 
supporting needed state educa- 
tional programs? One question iit

The new two-filariient bulb in each

in the candle sockets are to be turned

A practical point about a lamp of

Did you ever have the Jitters, 
or do you have them now? Surely 
you know what they are. That in- 
defhiable agitated feeling that 
comes with too much work or too 
much play. This peculiar afflic- 
tfon is one most common to every 
house-wife during the month <rf 
January. Every thing has been 
put off and allowed to accumulate 
during the holiday season. When 
time comes to gather up loose 
ends they are so overpowerlhgly 
numerous that this "should be" 
happy housewife looses her good 
disposition and jitters, yes, jitters 
all the time. 

There are unpleasant things 
familii^ will stand for and sym- 
pathize with, sickness for in- 
stance. Jitters, however, isn't one 
of those things, and the family 
with patience exhausted leave 
mosphere. What is the poor mother 
to do then? Wan her work^more 
barefuUy, and take advantage of 
the many "Electrical" aids science 
and invention haveTinade avaJF- 
able to her. The engineers have 
been working oyer time to de- 
velop more help to the house- 
wife at a minimum of expense. 
Already thousands of women ac- 
claim "electricity" for the. pre- 
paration and preservation of food. 
Electric refrigeration "saves her 
food and money, now she turns 
to "electric cookery" because it 
saves her time, it also retains the 
vitamins in cooked food. She 
knows it is accurate, economiolkl 
and convenient and will also help 
to slice the food budget down. 

There is no better jitters 
remedy than a "tUne control" oven 
cooked meal. Go places with your 
family and still come home to a 
hot meal. Let your electric range 
be both cook and cooker.

never had the ^Bsease. There were

instructed to -keep them at home 
for two weeks, beginning last Fri- 
day. It is expected that those who 
do n<A0yek)p the disease during 
the f^^ight's quarantine will 
then be permitted to return to 

The quarantine was being 
strictly observed by some parents 
while others were permitting the 
children to play with others as 
usual. , ^ 

Some of the grades were hit 
harder thian others by the quar- 
antine. Only four first grade 
children are attending school. 

In view of this situation exam- 
inations will not be held at the 
Beach school next week.^They are 
now scheduled for Januafy 2$, 29 
and 38. 

There is a possibility, the News 
learned on Thursday, that the 
quarantine order may be modified 
and the children be permitted to 
return to school on Monday. 

Beach school board members 
were in conference on Wednesday 
with the county health officer, 
^ho indicated that , the original 
two-weeks quarantine period 
might be cut short. 

T he school board members, it 
was learned, were not in sympathy 
with the long quarantine period 
but found they could do nothing 
about Jtj,^ The health^authorltles^ 
convinced them they were acting^ 
within the law. 

One of the school board mem- 
bers said that he gathered from 
Dr. Leake that there were actually

The outbreak has not yet caused 
much trouble in the county.

'T«HOUSANDS of people of all ages

fascinating hobby of picture talting, 
own box cameras but, believe it or 
not, have permitted an Inferiority 
complex to creep upon them, as far 
as respect for the performance of 
_^thelr cameras Is concerned. Now 
that really sounds ridiculous. It Is 
true, nevertheless. Readers have 
written to the Snapshot Guild with 
a tale of woe about waiting for 
spring to arrive to make a concerted 
effort to liftift'Ove their pictures. So 
many owners of box camerias seem

The fellow with a lot of fine equip* 
ment doesn't deserve half the 
praise.for an unusual picture as4he 
real amateur, who owns a box cam- 
era and who, through perseverance 
and thought, gets a "knockout" pic- 
ture under adverse conditions. Look 
at the heading of this column this 
week. If you have belittled your 
camera by discarding It for the 
winter you owe it an apology fof

"The flowera SS^ the palm 
trees are withered, even the <M 
palmetto was turned brown," said 
Mr. Meade. "Vegetables were kill- 
ed and I believe two-thirds of the 
citrus fruit was injured. Few 
groves except those whose owners 
used firepots escaped. Many of 
the trees will have to be cut back. 
The temperature in the northern

they have had since 1913 and the

"Aye, • Did not jrou cast a spell 


tie die because he would not sign 
your book?" questioned the judge. 

"I have no booK/* answered 
Orace Sherwood plteously. "and 
I hold no madness against Rich 
ard Capps, nor would I poison his 
cattle, although he hath persecut- 
ed me greatly." 

"Well, thjBn, Qoncerning Jane 
Cteboume," spoke up the prose- 
cnti ng attorney, "She says 'twas 
you who east a spell and blighted 
her c«^ of cotton." ' 

"X know naught of spells. I 
htsve no power to blights crops," 
answered the prisoner. 

"I conjmand you, Grace Sher- 
wood, to teU the full truth in this 
matter," thundered the justice^ 
"ilow came Jane Qisboume to be 
ented and to charge you with 
lolng It?" 

Some of the fear seemed to 
leave Grace Sherwood, who now 
apoke out in a clear, strong voice 
"1 be a God-fearing woman and' 
no servant of the_^vil, as ye 
would make jne. llnn entirely 
Innocent of these chwgeSNt tell 
you. Why am I to be harried and 
hawked in this manner? Ijjipi 
not come here to say I'm a iwUch 
f»d-to^tak«f away mF dwirnre hy 
saying so." \ 

"Then I ani to suppose that you 
practiced no witchcra^P^gainst 
Slizabeth Barnes," saidl^e justice, 
"That you did not assum^^e aj)- 
'6f a black cat, enter her 
Sleeping room, drive her from her 
bed, whip her unmercifully, then 
disappear sudde;nly, either through 
the keyhole or under the door, she 
Itnows hot which." 

At this point the proceedings 
were suddenly interrupted *Mr, 
Peyton, a well-known planter 
from up the river, who has stud- 
led law in England and practiced 
the profession on occasion, had 
risen from his seat on the side of 
Uie room, and came striding dewa^ 
the cromled aisle. He was a tall, 
gray-headed man, of uncommon 
benevolent countenance and pre- 
poescsshig appearance. His hair 
Was combed back from his high, 
twUshed forehead, and fell hi 
long, white locks upon his coat 
collar, tie was dressed very much 
•fter the same style as the pre- 
siding justice, and carried an 
Ivory-headed cane. 

He bowed to the justices, and 

, In a clear, well-modulated voice 

^pmdressed them: "Your Honors, 

jff^mv I presume to address- the 

fT^ court? You all know me well. 1 

detire to speak in defensp of this 

woman. Z am fully quaUf led., and 

Wish to act as her attorney in 

tills matter." 

"Budi Is quite hi order, Mr. 
Pieyton," answered the justice. 

"Then may I put but one ques- 
tton?" asked Mr. Peyton. "Were 
not the charges brought by Rich- 
ard Capi», John Oisbourne and 
bis. wife ilaoe,. Ajithony .Barnes 
and his wife. Elisabeth, all heard 
in court and a verdict rendered 
In favor of this Orace Sherwood?" 

"Tlie affair of Richard G^pps 
was not brought to court, I be- 
lieve," answered the justice, "but 
was settled by agreement of both 
IMtrtleB. The other two cases were

outside of the courtroiMn, but to 
stand up in court and speak under 
oath was another thing. 

After a few moments of strain- 
ed silence, the jxistice turned to 
Luke Hill. "You be the accuser, 
Luke Hill, let the court hear what 
you have to say in this matter." 

"May it please Your Hoaat. my 
charge was not that she be a 
witch to my own true knowledge, 
but that there be grave suspicion 


"Then if there be no witnesses," 
said the justice, "and if the 
sheriff has chosen those td be of 
the jury, let fhem be sworn in and 
take the prisoner aside into the 
anti-room to shift and search her 
for warts, spots, moles, and abra- 
sions, at any such other accredit- 
ed signs abqut her body of her 
act^ith„the_deyU. If ye 12 


court, utoere she was opmly ac- 
rased of witchcraft during the 
proceedings, but the trials wer^ 
not on charges of witchcraft." 

"Just so," answered Mr. Peytcm, 
"md was not the accuser here. 
IaSk mu, am his wife haled Into 
oottit sometime last December of

Sierwood. Charghig Madam HtU

found guilty of the charge and did 
not the court render such a ver- 

"AH yott siqr is tn«," answered 
ttie jmUoe. 

"So why, may I ask. is this case 

htbm teled on heaimy rather thm 

M^Mftl facts. If there be any wtt^

No one pivsent seemed tai-

dames find such marks not usual 
in other women, you are to make 
a report on oath to the truth

"Also I order th^Mieriff to go 
forthwith to the house of Grace 
Sherwood, fogether with the con- 
stable of that urecinct," and tb 
search the premises for all images 
and such like things as may 
strengthen the suspicion that has 
been lodged by Luke Hill. Till 
these things be done, I order the 
ourt recessed." 

The next day there was no 
change in the inclement weather, 
the creeks and streams had over- 
flowed their banks, and the roads 
were in places almost hub-deep- in 
mud, yet the courtroom was again 
craisfded with its throng of specta- 
tors.-^ '- ,- -- -;- -

had found nothing in the house

sun's rays streamed down from a 
cloudless sky radiating an ener-

and (miy subject of conversation. 
Prompty at 10 o'clock, the 
sheriff put in his appearance with 
the prisoner and straightway 
made off toward the pond, where 
the justice and a large group of 
the colonists were gathered, 
awaiting their coming. The justice, 
Mr. Boush,^ Mr. Peyton and a 
number of other gentlemeh had 
sooght' sneiief ffbm" The suff^sjr

rays under the shade of a 
oak tree by the water's edge, and 
the sheriff piloted his prisoner to 
this spot, followed by a thnmg of 
eager spectators intent upon Hie 
drama betag enacted. Everyone 

clibwded closer for a better point 
of vantage from which to view 
the proceedings. 

After greetings had been ex- 
changed, the justice asked: "Hsts 
all precaution been provided, such 
as convenient assistance of men 
and boats?" 

"Aye," answered the sheriff, 
"and the depth of the water off 
this point been tested to assure us 
that it be above a man's depth." 

"All proper care should be used 
in such matter," observed the 
justice, "Now Grace Sherwood, 
have you aught to say, why this 
test be not given. " 

"Should I say aught, 'twould be 
to no purpose, ' answered Grace 

"TTiere have been many circiun- 
stances to indicate that you be a 
witch,' to all of which you inade 
no excuse and had little of no- 
thing to say in. your own behalf, 
only Gee|iing to reply on what the 
court would do. " said the justice 

gravely, "therefore I havejirdered 
that you be tried by water. Do you 
consent?" ' 

"If by so doing 'twill clear me 
of this foul charge, I gladly con- 
sent," answered Orace Sherwood, 
in a clear, strong voice. 

"Then let her be given " over 
again to the jury of women, who 
are to search her mottt carefully 
before she goes into the water 
that she carry nothing about her 
to cause any further suspicion. 
They will bind her hand and foot, 
and then will the sheriff and his 
men fetch her here and cast her 
into the water, to see whether or 
not it redeite her," ordered the 

Whereupon Grace Sherwood 
was led aside bysthe old women 
who did as they were bid. All the 
while Mr. Peyton stood by with 
folded arms, and openly showing 
his displeasure at the whole busi- 
ness. When Grace Sherwood was 
brought back by the sheriff anc 

his men, 
mouth as4f 
probably rea 
such action, 

the husky deputies swxiiig the 
bound body of TJrace^herwood 
far out into thie water with a re- 
sounding splash and then floated 
as though it were of cork. "See!" 
they screamed, "She be self-con- 
victed! The water will not receive 
her! Yea. truly she be a witch." 
Mr, Peyton could stan^ no 
more. He strode forward to the 
water's edge, shouting, "Ye fools, 
mean ye to let her drown! Some- 
one give a hand. Fetch the boat 
and bring her ashore." The crowd 
was stirred to action by his anger 
and several men waded out and 
brought the drenched body of 
Grace Sherwood ashore. The 
throngs that bound her were un- 
tied, and she now lay chewing 
and sputtering, coughing up the 
water she had swallowed during 
the ducking. 

Mr. Peyttm, thougUy an^TMl 
turned ai^ftercely srttacked the 
justice, "Uttle did I thhik that 
you would have had a hand in 
this. Pray teU me where be jus- 
tice in such practice. It hath 
neither sense or reastm-^his 
strange theory. Should the wo- 
man swim to security then she be 
favored of the devil and so self- 
convicted. And if she sank in 
this foolish.test of yours, then' she 
be innocent, and pray, to what 
proper compensaticm. Bah! You 
all be dolts and fools.'' 

"I care not for the manner in 
which you address your remarks 
to a.^ magistrate of the law, Mr. 
Peyton," answered the justice, 
"however that will lie overlooked 
for .the moment. But for all, 
the^IBi^ reason in what you say. " 

Assistance was being given 
Grace Sherwood all the while, and 
now she was able to rise to a set- 
ting position, and gazed about her ' 
with a dazed rexpressiori. The 
justice came over to her and spoke 
"Grace Sherwood, in this matter 
with thee, we have been in the 
wiong. 1 would make amends. 
THnucHng youTiave * received 
shall suffice the coftiplainant in 
this case, and I declare you a 
free woman of, the charge of 
witchcraft. Let my carriage b^ 
brought and carry Mat^am Sher- 
wood to her home fortttwith. Mr. 
Peyton, we thank you Irgrn the 
bottom of our hearts for Showing 
us the error of our ways. Should 
this woman have drowned her 
blood would have been upon our 
hands. Now, all of you people 
here gathered to see the woman 
persecuted, let there be no more 
talk of witches amongst you. List- 
en well, I say there shall be no 
more of this foolish talk amongst 
you . And if .you,do.not heed what 
I say you will not be dealt with

will work was explained to the 
supervisors last month by O. O. 
Kdley, the district supervisor. A 
full account was carried by this 
paper at the time. \ 

The committee members will 
serve without compensation. ' 

Miss Phyllis Parsley, county re-

Monday tlvit the rehabilitation 
programdyould get under way 
without mlay. She was then 
looking over the jrelieL roll and 
selecting persons she thought 
were eligible for the government 
assistance. Some names probably 
will be presented for discussion at 
the first meeting of the commit- 
tee. Miss Parsley said that, she 
did not- know how many ellglbles 
there wvre in this county but that 
she had Wn informed that about 
50 were toeing discovered in the 
average Virginia county.

how FERA money is being spent 
I say cut it out," Supervisor DM^ 
ley remarked at Monday's meet- 
ing, in connection with the Baker 
dismissal. "That money may be 
helping us some now but it wbn't 
over a five-year period. Th^more 
money you pass out that vrjLy the 
more you have to\spend." 

Mr. Baker, who has be^n pro- 
jects engineer for South Norfolk 
as well as for Princess iV^ne, 
brought the news of bis dismissal 
to the board. He said that he 
received a letter some days ago 
informing him of the appointment 
of a new projects engineer, named 
Boma^, about whom he had no 
details, for this county. 

"Then I got a tategram on Sat- 
urday telling me that I was fired 
lK>th from South Norfolk and 
Princess Anne," he explained. 

"I was given no reason," he 
said, adding that there had been 
friction between him and Colonel 
Butler and that perhaps in that 
lay the explanation. He remark- 
ed, Incidentally, that it was rum- 
ored Colonel.Butler was losing his 
Job as district engineer ^Mt that 
he hsMl not been able to confirm 
that rumor. 

"I've heard no objection to Mr. 
Baker.'i said- Chairman James. 
"Maybe we'd better ask why Mr. 
Baker was laid off." 

As the supervisors discussed the 
matter, Uieir ire increased. 
Unfair, Says Payne 

"1 ntove we ask why Mr. Baker 
is being dismissed," said Super. 
visor William Payne. "This Pus^-

kind of game. v 

Saturday will bring to an end a 
poor ducking season but Warden 
Carmean believes that there will 
be better shooting this fall. Young 
grass is coming up in all parts of 
Back Bay, he says, and it has been 
the lack pf food which has been 
primarily responsible for the scar- 
city of ducks this season. 

"Prom what I hear now," said 
Warden Carmean, "I don't believe 
the government will adopt the 
three-year closed season plan 
which was talked some time ago. 
That would be a mistake, in ,my 
opinion, for sevefal reigns and 
I don't look for the adoption of 
the plan." 

Many Chibs Closed 

The season will close quietly, 
said Warden Carmean, about two- 
thirds of the. gunning clubs in 
this area having already shut 
down. Those still open, be said, 
are Corey's, Pocahontas, Ragged 
Island, Princess Anne, Saod 
Brldge^anid^fWse Caper whigh ige t ~ 
marsh clubs, and the foUowing 
battery clubs: Lovltt's, Drum 
Point, Newport News, Briar Island 
and Tillett Whltehurst's. 
- "Ducks have .been very scaree," 
he continued. ^'Some shot their 
Umit opening day but I have not 
heard of anyone getting the limit 
at a battery club since opening 
day. Only a few have shot their 
limit at the marsh clubs.'^ 
Canvasbacks AiriVe 

Canvasbacks appeared in num- 
ber on Wednesday in Back Bay 
the first time this year there has 
been a considerable number of 
them there. Warden Carmean 
said that he saw abdut 2000 on 
Wednesday, ., 

"Violations of the game laws 
have been few this season," he 
continued. "I arrested two per- 
sons for night shooting this week 
but they were the first arrests off 
that sort this season. Altogether 
we arrested 22 persons for shoot- 
ing without federal duck stamps. 
That is more, than were arrested, 
so the Biological Survey tells me, 
in all the rest of the country to- 
gether. The government did not 
press charges against them but it 
made them buy the stam)>s."

^l-om July 1, 1932, when the 
Byrd road plan, under which, the 
State assumed the upkeep of all 
roads fort^erly maintained by 
counties, was effectivcLand July 1, 
1934, the State expended $98,- 
531.86 on the. secondary highways 
in Princess Arine. 

Of this sum, according to a re- 
port filed with the board of super- 
visors this week by H. L. Hanger, 
resident State Highway engineer 
for Norfolk and Princess- Anne 
counties. tbZJ^BM was expended 
on betterments and construction 
and $35,973.22 on ordinary mah)- 

"On July 1, 1932," read the 
engineer's report, "the State took 
over 238.14 miles of secondary 
roads which were classified as fol- 
lows: 38.49 miles Of hard surface, 
34.86 miles of soil, gravel and 
sand-clay, 153.37 mile^ of graded 
but unsurfaced and 11.43 miles of 
unimproved. Since that date 6.32 
miles of secondary roads have 
been added to the primary ssrstem- 
and 6.69 miles of road have been 
added to the secondary system." 

"On July 1, 1934 Jthe it»condary 
system of Princess Anne county 
had 237.77 miles of roads, of 
which 80.37 were hard surface, 
13.50 miles soil, gravel or sand- 
clay «nd 143J0 ^iles graded or 

In doing this work on the coun. 
ty roads the State used 6806 tons 
of crushed stone, 972 feet of con- 
crete pipe, 22,166 loads of local 
surface material, 330^040 galtois 
of oil and 62,764 feet of lumber. 

Mr. Hanger indicated that road 
work in the county was not being 
carried on actively at the moment 
but would be actively pressed in 
the spring.

This is the explanation which

The board was prepared to go 
to the mat with C<donel M. A.

(Bieloled that the firing was not 
done by Colonel Butler but by 
State headquarters. 

The supervisors, however, were 
Iireparing to talk the matter over 
with Ckdonel Butler at a special 
meeUng to be held on. -Tuesday 
ni^t of this week but the con- 
ference was called off at the last

In View of the fact that the State

Attorney's Fee 
On Loan to Town 
Irks Councilmen 

Willcox Offered $100 on $200 
Bill As Barnes Votes Loud 

T. H. Willcox, attorney for the 
Norfolk National BaQk of Com- 
merce, thinks Virginia Beach owes 
him $200 but several members of 
town council put the obligatitm at 
$100 and one member, Roy Barnes, 
fixes it at nro. 

Here's what the argument's 
about: Last year the town bor- 
rowed $40,000 from the bank on 
tax antlclpatlori notes. The bank 

prove the legality of the notes, 
which he did. He says the town 
indicated that the bank would pay 
His fee of $100 for the service. But 
the bank didn't. 

The other day the town went to 
borrow $35,000 from the bank and 
Mr. Willcox gave an opinion. He 
sent the town a bill for $200, $100 
for (Ms year and $100 for last 
year. The bill struck smrks when 
it was presented to council Mon- 
day night. 

The councilmen indicated ^at 
they didn't think much of t^e 
$100 charge in general and they, 
didn't see why Mr. Willc(» was 
sending out year old bills. All of 
them voted, however, to offer him 
$100 except Councilman Barnes. 
He voted "no." 

T dOTt see why the town 
should^ forced to pay a bonus 
on a six per cent leui. with good 
security, when m(mey is as plenti- 
ful as it is." said CouncUman

All-Day Argument at Suffolk 
On Wednesdav Attended by 
Attorneys For Princess 
Anne County. 

Nansemorid's suit against Nor- 
folk City for taxes alleged to be 
owed on water depart^eht prop- 
erty located in the county was 
argued at Suffolk on Wednesday 
and the court indicated that a 
decision would be rendered Vlthin 
a week or ten days. The outcome 
of this suit may have an import- 
ant bearing on Princess Anne's 
suit tb recover about $75,000 in 
taxes from Norfolk. 

Conuhonwealth's Attorney. Paul 
W. Ackiss, of Princess Anne and 
Meriwether Armistead. of Wil- 
li am s b u rg . special counsel for this 
county in the contest with Nor- 
folk, heard the all-day argument 
for Suffolk. The Norfolk case was 
presented by City AtS omejg ^ifPffiif 
N. Sebrell and R. W. Shultice. who 
was acting city attomeyTJf^Nor- 
folk when the suit was Instituted. 
Charles B. Godwin, Nansemond 
commonwealth's attorney, argued 
for the county. 

The case • appears, said Mr. 
Ackiss, to turn on whether or not 
the Norfolk water department 
made a profit between 1927 and- 

water department was operated 
over that period at a loss of $11,- 
000. Nansemond claims it made 
a profit during that period of $1.- 

Nansemond contended that the 
burden of proof is upon Norfolk 
to show that it is exempt from 
paying the county taxes. The 
•court did not rule on that point. 

An important point in the case, 
.said Mr. Ackiss, is that Norfolk 
pays nothing for the water that 
the city uses for fire protection 
and other purpcees. Nansemond 
contends that the value of this 
water to the city must be con- 
slA»red as profit.

State , Convention Probably 
Will Be Held At Beach Late 
In June. 

The 1935 State convention of 
the American Legion may be held 
at Virginia Beach in June in- 
stead of in September, as origin- 
ally planned. 

Princess Anne Post 113 learned 
at its meeting on Tuesday night 
that the 1935 national convention 
of the Legion will be held this

24, 25 and 26 and that the Legion 
regulation which requires the 
holding of State conventions at 
least 30 days prior to the natitmal 
convention may prevent the Beach 
from entertaining the Virginia 
Legionnaires after Labor Day. 

The local post is now endeavor- 
ing to find out whether an excep- 
tion to the 30-day rule can be 
made for the Beach and the con- 
vention committee of Post 113 is 
discussing whether lt--would be 
&est to'set the convention "for late 
June or early July.V 

A committee consisting of A. J. 
Kodis, John Sparrow, Lemuel 
Garrison and Roy Smith was 
named to consider the advisibility 
of renting the post's old club- 
house, on 17th street, or of selling 
the building for removal tol an- 
other site. The committee will 
also inquire into the >possiblIity of 
selling two lots on '26th sUeet 
owned by the post. 

The post no longer needs the 
old clubhouse, being comfortably 
quafwfear in ^hew one on the' 

"I don't think there will be a 
better Legion clubhouse than this 
in Virginia by the time the con. 
vention theets," said Post Oxn- 
mander Lawrence Lockwood, at 
the Tuesday night meeting.

But it to a wry ea^ i^ep ftws 
that to tpe transactim ot oOier 
business in cloeed meetiz^, (»ice 
the habit of shutting the doras

othSr matters, beside the distribu- 
tion of relief money, which it 
might be possible for the super- 
visors %o'\ convince themselves 
could be bet^r numagcd if npt 
subject to pul^ic scrutiny, though 
the people of thk county might 
not agree with their supervisors 
as tb that. 

Why have we suddenly become 
so finicky regarding relief dis- 
? Hundreds here were 
on relief a year ago when the 
Civil Worlds prdgram was being 
carried on. Only those whojvere 
in need were supposed to draw 
Civil Works jobs and they felt nfe 
shame at having their names^re- 
yealed. They felt that if was no 
disgrace to be hard up in tim» 
like these. On the other hand 
one of the surest ways to build 
up in this country a large group 
of people "Who feel that the gov- 
ernment owes them a living, 
whether or not they work for it, 
is for considerable sums of money 
—42000 in th* case of Princess 
Anne county this mohth-^to be 
regularly passed out in secret to 
persons who can convince a relief 
investigator that they need it. 
There are people — and the sui^er- 
visors know this — who wi)l spend 
more energy to keep a relief dir- 
ector convinced of their need than 
they will -spend trying to make a 
living. And it will be a great deal 
easier for them to do this if their 
neighbors are unaware of what is 
going on than if they are— which 
is something the supervisors also 
know but which last week they 
appear to have forgotten.

report to the Joint ferry com- 
mittee of Portsmouth and Norfolk 
County that the system last year 
did a business of $663,861.83, cosjl 
$408,948.27 to operate and showed 
a prof it of $194,913.56. an increase' 
In profit from the preceding year 
ot $17,914.43. 

These f llures ought • to make 
people in Princess Anne and Vir- 
glnit Beach gnash their teeth for 
• considerable portion of the ex- 
ceasive profit of the ferry mono- 
poly came out of the pockets of 
people here, and of the people 
who come here in summer. Again 
the News asks: How long are Nor- 
folk County and Portsmouth to 
permitted to levy tribute upon 
til here because they control the 
principal approach to this part of 

Sven these figures do not tell 
the whole story of Norfolk County 
uid Portsmouth gouging because 
the ferries, being politically-con- 
trolled, are the haven for the 
"friends" of political leaders of 
the county and city. Privately 
operated their payrolls would be 
BhQrter and their profits even 
floater than tliey are, though 
they are shamefuUy high as^ tt is, 

Norfolk i» strangely apathetic | to them 
to A siiuation Which no other city 
In the worid wouW4iave permitted 
to continue this long. It appears 
up to Virginia Beach anti Princess 
Anne to start a fight in which 
Kdrfolk should have taken the 
lead. The high ferry toll sltua- 
tiim does not concern us (luite so 
much as it does Norfolk but the 
excessive rates hit us here iiard 
enough to warrant aggressive 
■teps to secure their reduction. 

^ this county had reason to be 
proud of the spirit in which busi- 
ness Is conducted at supervisors' 
meetings. The county legislators, 
without ^«xception, are forthright 
man who are not afraid to express 
their convictions. Their frank- 
ness in comment on. county mat- 
ters has been in refreshing con- 
trast to the practice in many 
places, Norfoll^'s city council 
chamber among them. The busi- 
ness of this county has been 
trahsacted at supervisors' meet- 
ings for all Interested to hear — 
not|; threshed out In secret confer, 
enclp and merely rubber stamped 
in bpen meeting. In these dis- 
cussions It has been apparent that 
the supervisors spoke their minds, 
regardless of whether or not their 
opinions would make friends or 
enemies. This is the spirit which 
begets good government and 
honest government. The board's 
action last week was so contrary 
to its habit that it is impossible 
not to feel that the members fail- 
ed to appreciate the seriousness 

of Ithelr step. The News trusts 
that Its readers will make plain 
to members of the board that they 
feel that the matter is important 



P^w of its readers, the News 
fecte certain, will regard ^ith 
proval the evident intention of t^' 
county board of supervisors to 
oimduct a portion of its business 
In the dark. When Chairman 
liOlton James, with the acqule- 

manbers, last week asked a re- 
porter for this paper to leave the 
tonn while relief questions were 
<ttKussed with the county relief 
director, he really asked the peo- 
1^ of U»is county to withdraw be- 
MUse few citizens have the time

while hundreds are informed of 
what occurs at them by this news- 
paper, /f 

New^apers won thfi^right to Ve- 
pKt theVdiscyssions of legislative 
bodl« only after ieenturles of 
struggle, in the course of which 
many newspaper men became 
acquainted with the inside of 
ftigUsh prisons. The press fought 
ttto battle, in reality, lor the 
piMic because admitting the press. 
was tantamount to opening the 
0oon to al]. Naturally the press 
k jMdous of this hard-won right 
ki^ c^tisens should be no less con- 
CHned because when public af* 
fidrs begiii to be conducted behind 
dOMd doors the end of popular

RefJdrts of go^ tourist business 
which Rev. Walter J. Meade and 
others have recently brought back 
from Florida should encourage 
Virginia Beach folk. It was de- 
monstrated last season that 
Florida winter patronage was a 
reliable pointer to the volume of 
summer resort business and so ft 
should be this year, 

True, the season has Just open- 
ed in Florida but there is every 
reason to suppose that the crowd 
there will be good through the 

ason since it was good In De- 
cember. More people seem to be 
going to Florida this year than 
last year despite the fact that the 
weather In the North this winter 

last winter, when extreme temper 
atures and heavy snowfalls un 
doubtedly drove many to the 
South. Florida's continued im- 
provement in winter business is 
undoiibtedly not due to any sud- 
den spurt In Florida's popularity 
I rpsults from the fact that people 
ave more money to ■ spend this 
Hklnter than they had last winter 
and considerably more than they 
had two years ago. They won't 
spend it all In Florida. 

Unless general business condi 
tions slump between now and 
summer, and the chances are 
against that, Virginia Beach will 
do as much business in 1935 as it 
did in 1934. perhaps more.' There 
should be an increase In business 
from the improved conditions In 
the country and from the year-to- 
year advance which this resort 
makes in public favor. On the 
other hand the Beach may not 
get quite such good weather as it 
did last summer, ^hen it was 
favored by t4ie elements from 
beginning to end. But thdt the 
Beach will get as much busuiess 
as it did in 1934, seems a safe bet 

Quift safe enough a bet for 
property owners here who. have 

Unless this country's foreign 
trade lis maintained, warns Dr. 
Mordecai Ezekiel, economic ad- 
viser to the Secretary of Agricul' 
t u re, l nd n .s t ry . wiU-Sfa iiLirgBlJlffi 
Atlantic Seaboard to the intii 
That is something for this sec- 
tion^ and thei industrial areas 
North of us to think about and it 
is something for farmers here to 
consider, because the best market 
for our produce is North of vs. 

Vr. Ezeklel's prediction strikes 
this paper as well grounded. A 
great many manufacturing plants 
are , located on or near the coast 
because much of what they pro- 
duced, in years gone by. has been 
sold in the foreign market. Manu- 
facturing for domestic consump- 
tion they would prefer to be 
located near the center of popu- 
lation. Let our foreign trade con- 
tinue to languish and, in the 
course of years, as these manu- 
facturers build new plants their 
plants will be moved inland. That 
will rob the agricultural sections 
of the East, particularly sections 
which do the sort of farming that 
is done in this county, (rf part of 
their market. 

It is all very well to attempt 
to lift prices In this country — 
prices^ farm producec, labor, 
coal, manufactured cuticles and 
what not — but it must not be for- 
gotten. thaLas„ we jalse the Amer- 
ican price level by NRA codes, 
Bankhead Act acreage curtail- 
ment programs and similar de- 
vices, we are reducing our oppor- 
tunities of doing business with the 
rest of the world. If the foreigner 
can buy cheaper elsewhfte he is 
not going to buy in this country, 
now that we ha\?e stopped lending 
him money with which to buy our 
goods. Whether we can enjoy the 
same degree of prosperity in this 
country when our sales are con- 
fined to the domestic market, as 
when we were selling not only to 
ourselves but to people all over 
the world is seriously to be doubt- 

- It is true "that tiie New Deal 
price-lifting campaign over the- 
last year or so has made condi- 
tions appear somewhat better In 
thfs country. But has the relative 
prosperity any solid foundation? 
Perhaps we are, as Dr. Ezekiel 
suggests, taking the penny and 
letting the pound go. It is a point 
for coast people, in particular, to 
ponder because it is they who will 
suffer most if we render it impos- 
sible to recapture our foreign

for a quarter, the price of a

partment was Jesting about the 
quarter. But It Wasn't many days 
before a womMr appeared at the 
News office, puzzled and serious, 
to say that she was the bathrobe's 
owner but she didn't intend to 
pay that quarter. Furthermore, 
she said, she didn't want the 
bathrobe. Why, under those cir- 
cumstances, she bothered with the 
News was never clear to thto de- 
partment unless she wanted to 
furnish the paper with evidence 
that Virginia Beach News ads al- 
ways get their man.

Whenever the Norfolk papers 
carry accounts of the last-minute 
rush to obtain city automobile 
licenses, or of outraged groups of 
taxpayers protesting the severity 
of the Norfolk license scale, this 
department glows with satisfac- 
tion. Immunity fronf that tax is 
not the least of the Joys of coun- 
try or small town existence. The 
county and the Beach might well, 
during tlus annual period- ot 
teeth-gnashing at Norfolk, ar- 
range a parade, down Oranby 
stteet to advertise the fact that 
there\ are happy areas not far 
away which are spared that grief. 
Such a demonstration might help 
to draw settlers to the great open 
spaces hereabout. 

Louis Phllhower says he to get- 
thig ready to announce that he 
will oppose John Doyle thto year 
for Mayor of Lynnhavwi. 

"I understand" said Mr. Phll- 
hower, "that Mr. Doyle to con- 
ceded more experience than I can 
claim but I am willing to learn." 

When s6me^"SieTiTouffit fh to 
the News office for inspection 
that curious lizard which Rbssell 
Dyer picked up on the beach the 
otl^r day, this department re- 
flected that if there are any more 
such critters crawling about in 
these parts the cause of temper- 
ance will be helped. For thto de- 
partment has certain bibulous 
friends It feels certain would 
forthwith climb upon the water 
wagon If they encountered one of 
those things after have downed 
two or three gin fizzes. 

Now that the navy radio cmn- 
pass station here has illuminated 
Its towers in really fancy fashion, 
this department suggests that 
when Christmas comes around 
again the Beach should use one 
of .-tht rddio towers as its cMn- 
niunity Christmas tree. For, Jt 
would appear almost ^as easy to 
tie pine branches all oyer one of 
those radio towers as to string 
lights all over a tall cedar tree,. 
And If rthat radio tower Cbrtol 
tree wouldn't get its photograph 
in all the rotogravure sections, 
this department is a poor pulSic- 
ity gu^ser. *

(Baltimore Sun) 
Today Albert C. Ritchie returns 

secutive"yeanr"is : 
Maryland. It is not pecessary to 
discuss the practical administra- 
tion of public business in that 
period. The nature of it is de- 
monstrated by the fact that the 
other members of. the State's gov- 
ernment and the people as a 
whole soon acquired the habit of 
relying upon him in the making 
of major dectoions and of resting 
content with hto conclusions, Mte- 
takes have been made, and some 
of them serious. But the average 
was so good that it was the failure 
of Ritchie at times to be Ritchie 
that evoked the sharpest critlctom. 

It to not, however, in practical 
admlntotration alone that Mr. 
Ritchie gave service to Maryland 
which he to entitled to cherish in 
memory and to regard as a lasting, 
honor. Mr. Ritchie brought to his 
duties as Governor of Maryland 
an enUghtened conception of gov- 
ernment. He possessed, a deep 
and thorough understanding of 
the democratic system, and he 
had faith in it. And so that he 
added a sense of Justice Which 
seldom ever wavered. He might 
have been a great Judge had .he 
not entered politics and reached 
high executive office. And the 
consequence has been that in 
these fifteen years t^re has been 
respect for human rights in Mary- 
land, and educati(»i of the people 
In human rights which not even 
the two iynchlngs on the Eastern 
Shore can obscure. Maryland pro- 
grel^d in civlliaed government 
under Albert Ritchie. 

We think the people of thto 
State sense this fact, and that to- 
day Mr. Ritchie carries with him 
into retirement the respect and the 
warm good will of all of us. We 
think that even those who said 
to him in November, "Depart!" 
are saying today with hto friends: 
"Peaee and happiness be yours! 
They-are earned."

(Raleigh News and Observer) 

With half the ftohlng popula- 
tion of Dare county reported to be 
in absolute want and compelli|ct> 
to extot on emergency relief doles 
of from two to four dollars a 
month, it would appear that thft 
State can do something to remedy 
their situation and restore their 
means of livelihood. The fisher- 
men of Dare, and of other eastern 
comities as well, are an independ- ' 
eht lot, and would much prefer 
catching fish to hanging around 
relief offices. But first there must 
be fish to catch. It to one of their 
complaints that trawlers owned 
by interests wUh ample capital, 
sometimes ccmung from out of 
ibte State, have frightened the fi^ 
away fnmi the inlet mouths at 
left inland waters well nigh bat 
They also declare that after mid- 
dlemen and large buyers haw 
taken their toll, there to nothdSig 
left for the working fishermen. 

It is one of the sins of big cap- 
ital that ruthlessly sweeps natural , 
resources clean and leaves nothing 
behind for the native and the 
loc^ little fellow. The present 
admlntotration has plahily^shown 
its intention of testorhig the bal- 
ance between the remembered 
man and the forgotten one. If 
the State is in--^aympathy with^ 
this aim— and its citizetUsJuive so 
htdlcated by their votes— it can 
stretch Its police arm out to pro- 
tect the people of North Carolina's 
fishing industry. Ftoh drawn 
from the waters are at all times 
and for all concerned, better Wan 
doles drawn from the government.

About "Britannia Waives the 
Rules," a screaming take-off on 
the very best English customs by 
Frances Douglas and Thelma Le 
Cocq, the publisher has the fol^ 
lon^g to say: "You will become 
muddled with 'tenners' and 'tan- 
ners,' attend a week-end party, 
and have 'the best peoplelHitof^ 
right through you . . . If you are 
human, you will not coine away 
until th« very last boat— or rather 
page . . ." For once the publisher 
has understated the case. 

Off %ith Their Heads," JPeggy 
Bacon's series of sketches of not- 
ables and near notables, was 
doubtless found in many Christ- 
mas stockB^gs. The cartoons are 
Bupplemented-4^~4de ver tde s crip- ?- 
tlons. The only criticism which 
can be made of this glorified pic- 
ture-book for grown-ups is that 
the figures would be better known 
to the New Yorker than the in- 
habitant of the provinces. How- 
ever, scane arp people we all know; 
there is a chuckle and a gasp for 
all — and a wonder as to how Miss 
Bacon gets away with it.

Shall our highways be scenic 
or signic?" This is the question 
asked by Mrs. Janet Stuart Dur- 
ham, chairman of the Virginia 
Council for the Protection of 
Roadside Beauty, in an article 
which will appear in The Com- 
monwealtli, publication of the 
Virginia State Chamber of Com- 

"It is tl^e height (^ folly to 
bring the beauties of Virginia to 
the attention of the country and 
invite visitors to come here and 
then let these visitors go away 
disgusted at the unsigjitliness of 
our roadsides," Mrs; Durham de- 

'A bill to regulate billboards in 
rural areas was Introduced in the 
1934 session of the General As- 
sembly of Virginia. The propon- 
ents of this bill argued that a 
pecial tax on billboards was just-' 
ified because a special benefit was 
conferred. The motorist pays a 
special tax on gasoline because 
of the special benefit he derives 
from good roads. But the outdoor 
advertiser parks his boards along 
the highways an^ receives^ free 
publicity without' paying any dir- 
ect tax for it. 1 

','The woman4k clubs and the 
garden clubs of Vii>iuia.-are unit- 
edly tecking t^e . tnovemtet to 
beautify the highways of the Old 
'^minion. They are setting out 
fiee.s along the roadsides and are 
rndeavoring to get the people liv-. 
ng along the highways to adorn 
iheU places with flowers and 
shrubbery./ Tliey are also becom- 
ing increasingly hostile to those 
'mslnesses which use the Ijlghways 
for advertising purposes. It would 
be much better business they 
think tp make the highways of 
Vii-glnla beautiful. 

We remeniiter the beautiful 
<Hings w^ see.' WTKave a revul- 
-'ion toward the unpleasant and 
It; ugly! It is the height of folly 
to bring the beauties of Virginia

Usgusted at the unslghtlin^s of

French Doll Up 
For U.S. Movies 

Put On Full Dress For Laurel 
And Hardy But Not For 
Grand Opera. 

The best dressed crowds here 
t;oday ar^ found at the first nights 
of American movies, says a United 
Pr^js dispatch from Paris. 

Invitations to "free" first nights 
read, "Full dress de rigueur," and 
ij; is obeyed to the letter. It is 
well nigh impossible to force the 
French into formal attire for the 
theater, the opera and many other 
regulation formal occasions. How- 
ever, when It comes to American 
movies they are more than willing 
to honor the celebrities, be it 
Laurel and Hardy or Mae West. 

Sacha Kuitry recently, sent out 
invitations for his new play. "The 
New Testament," and made this 
appeal: "We hope our friends will 
do for our play what they do 
regularly for an American movie: 
namely, put on full dress." A few 
did. Many did not. The Invita- 
tions which bear an edict rather 
than a request seem to bet the 
liest results. 

This unexpected air from Holly- 
wood, therefore, has been a great 
impetus to the movement here 
which is working for greater ele- 1 
gancc^ in masculine dress. 

Th^ leading exponents are 
Andre de Fougujeres, Jean -Gabriel 
Domergue and ABHJIermant. The 
committee does notSum at any- 
thing exotic or riovdSjn men's 
tailoring, but merely wai^Jo en- 
courage mm to weajMjlofStig ap- 
propriate for the \5fcci«ron at 
wliich they appear 

One of the Ideas launched by 
the organization Is that every 
theater should have a full dress 
evening once a month and no one 
should be admitted who does not

Just as we have a new year on 
an old, old world so we have new 
wrinkles for the old ^ stand-by 
dishes. A pot-roast is a pot-roast 
until you make it dei luxe, "pigs 
is pigs" and chickeii^is chicken, 
but when a dash of this or that 
and possibly both are added, they 
develop into the most elegant of 
the good. Just remember the more 
casual you are about cooking the 
better it is. Fix the food and let 
your automatic range do the rest. 

Are you one of the so numerous 
housekeepers who have to make 
every minute count for two an<J 
-think -aheadrTJot-onlyforTomor-T 
row, but the next day as well? If 
you are, a pot-roast de luxe Is 
just what you have been looking 

Pot-Roast De Luxe 

Four poi^nds chuck roast. Cut 
little pockets with a sharp knife, 
in which to tuck morsels of bacon, 
sage and garlic— also a bay leaf 
in one pocket. If you like mustard, 
spread a little over the top and 
also thin slices of lemon. Arrange 
oh a platter and k^ve in refriger- 
ator over night. It will be ready 
to chunk in the range whenever 
the time comes. Before placing 
in the oven, rub with a handful 
of flour. Sear while oven is build- 
ing up to temperature. When 
golden brown add carrots, par- 
snips, and turnips: Cover and 
cook 3 hours jit 325 degrees. 

Fried .Chicken In Batter 
Season chicken that has been 
dispointed. Brovm in skillet that 
has half butter and^Mlt bacon 
fat-about V2 cup-tw^eUier. When 
crisp and brown, remove to a bak- 
ing dish. Add 3 tablespoons flour 
to the fat in the pan, brown it. 
Add slowly 1 phit of rich milk, 
stirring every second so that it 
will not lump. Pour over chicken 
and bake at 350 degrees one hour. 
While baking the chicken it wlU 
fye a good idea to put in some 
potatoes to bake, either white or 
sweets and a corn pudding. This 
makes the meal a simple proposi-

Th« same group of bookish-

rew Jackson was an illiterate man 
and so, when he was President of 
the United States, he used to label 
documents which he approved 
with the initials "O. K." which 
he took to be the initials of all 
correct (oil korrect)." 

"that story," said the old 
gentleman, "is attributed to Seba 
Smith, a literary gentleman of the 
last generation (this was written 
about 1894), who wrote letters 
from Washington under the 
pseudonym of 'Major Jack Down- 

Couldn't find Story 

'"However, I have in my library 
a copy of 'Major Jack Downing's 
Letters from Washington,' and I 
do not find the story in that book 
. . . The tru^xplanation of O. K. 
la probably Mallows: 

Tliere is a tradition among the 
Intelligent Choctaws'* of the old 
Atodt who once lived in Mississippi 
that General Jackson' borrowed 
tile expression from the Choctaw 
language. ' The Choctaws and the 
Chiisasaws apeak the same tongue. 
Biay Be liidiuia BUng 

"In the language of tbese two 
peoplm there is no copulative verb 
that corresponds to 'be' in English 
itaae in Latin). A substitute is 
found in the emphatic word 
'«*eh', which ends every assertion 
in Choctaw. General Jackson was 
frequently among the Choctaws 
and Chickasaws before he became 
famous, and must have heard the 
eximBBi(m often. He probably 
adopted it very early in life as an 
expressive kind of slang and used 
it after he becam^ President as a 
private symbol to indicate ap- 

All but the super-assertive 
faiember were convinced. He was 
piepared with his rebuttal. First, 
he denied that Jackson was illiter- 
ate, but, even admitting that he 
was hot a scholar, his own letters 
prove ttot he was not so ignorant 
as to spell all correct "oil korrect". 

Next, he insisted that any phase 
or term employed by the Indians 
a hundred years ago might have 
b^n subject to any one of a hun- 
dred interpretations, and, finally, 
reading from the very record pro- 
duced by the host's father, he 
culled a passage from "Parton's 
Life of Jackson" in which the 
historian quoted an entry from 
the reeords of the court of Sum- 
ner county, Tennessee, probably 
wrtttNi by Jackson htmself: 

"October 6, 1790. Andrew Jack- 
son, Bm]., proved a bill of sale 
from Hugh McOary to Gasper 
Xiuidcer for a Ne^ man which 
was O. K." ."A common mistake,"

(Boston Herald) 

Are there too many ministers? 
The question Is raised .by an emin- 
ent teacher and clergyman. Dr. 
Elmer A. LesHe of the Boston Uni. 
versity school of theology. He 
implies what his own answer to 
that question would be by his re- 
cent statement that the "schools 
of the' prophets" hiust ^ork out 
a technique for the selelction of 
their students shnilar to those 
used for many years in schools of 
medic^e and law, and by his out- 
right criticism of the policy which 
has caused the seminaries to place 
in the churches "some men who 
should not be in the ministry un- 
c^r any cireufnstances." 
^(Ul ydM^know the full story -of 
theological education in this coun- 
try will endorse what this veteran 
has said. The theory has bten that 
i}iety is the f uhdamental quali- 
fication for a student for the min- 
istry, hardly ranked 6y ability or 
sound Judgment, and that it is in- 
cumbent on the several Protestant 
-denominations to ease the path of 
the average "thologue" into the 
pulpit. Many of the leading lay- 
men of the country long ago ex- 
pressed their doubts of the wisdom 
of this policy,, and it probably is 
not so common today as once it 
was, although nnanclal aid Is 
granted and other assistance ren- 
dered. N^ seldom the opinion lias 
been ex^essed that it would be 
better for the students themselves 
and in the long run for the 
churches if these aspirants 'were 
compelled to "work out their own 
salvation" in this respect. 

Doubtless Dr. Leslie spoke out 
of this own long experience •when 
he said: "We must ex^ine the 
psychology of each applicant, with 
tests adequately planned to dis- 
cover if he has the backing of 
common sen^e, good judgment, 
high dedication and existing apt- 
itudes that will carry him beyond 
mediocrity." For the guidance 
aitd sui-«rv4sion of theological 
students Dr. 'Leslie would propose 
an advisory system that might 
work out well. His main thests 
is sound. Mediocrity has long 
been the bane of the protectant 
pulpit, although in varying degree 
in the several denominations. The 
influence of tJie ministry (n this 
age dependp not cmly on that sin- 
c«rity of character whic^ wins 
the affection ot their people but 
on iMMUty Uut earns the r^pect

Safety Glass 

Ford Standard 

1935 V-88 Painted With New 
Enamel Which Resists 
Strong Sunlight. 

— Safefy glass as standard equip- 
ment in windshields, doors and 
wmdows of all body types is offer- 
ed this year for the first time in 
the new Ford V-8 for 1935, on dis- 
play in the showrooms of Armi- 
stead-Hodgson Motors, local Ford 

Ford was the first to introduce 
safety glass as standard equip- 
ment in the windshield of low- 
priced automobiles. This was in 
the Model A of 1927. 

This year safety glass, in wind- 
shields, doors and windows of all 
Ford V-8' models is standard 
equipment — another of the wholly 
new features of the Ford V-8 for 

Safety glass is in reality a 
"sandwich" of two sheets of glass 
cemented on opposite surfaces of 
a transparent flexible sheet. An 
important feature of Ford safety 
glass is its resistance to deteriora- 
tion due to ultra violet sun rays. 

A new hody etumel which gaso- 
line and alcohol cannot damage 
and which is highly resistant to 
the deteriorating effect of strong 
sunlight, such as Virginia Beach 
cars must endure, has been de- 
veloped by Ford engineers and is 
being applied to all Ford V-8 cars 
lor 1936. ^j 

The new body finish unllZes soy 
bean oil as an important ingred- 
ient. ^7 

Several years of experimenta- 
tion were devoted to the develop- 
ment of^he new enamel and of 
methods of proper api^cation to 
Ford all-steel bodies. This in- 
cluded sunlight tests in many 
parts of the world. Its first use 
was on the wheels of triicks sev- 
eral years ago. Later, body sur- 
faces of Ford trucks were finished 
with the new enamel. As a re- 
sult of discoveries made during 
this period. Ford engineers de- 
veloped present methods of ap- 
plication of the hard, glossy sur- 

Principal feature of the new 
enttmel is its resistance to the de- 
teriorating effect of strong sun- 
light. Ultra violet rays do not 
break down the surface which re- 
tains its hard glossy finish inde- 
finitely. Only washing is required 
to restore its. lUstre.

It was reported from Raleigh

North Carolina automobiles that 
stop !n the vicinity of A. B. C.

into the cars with purchases of 
A. B. C. liquor and then telephone 
their license numbers to authori-

towns, in order that the latter 
might stop the cars and sieze the 

''That sounds like some sort ot

Thompson, when asked if he had 
any knowledge of such a plan. 
"A tax of two dollars per gallon

Fow Fatalities 

Wlien proper precautions are ob- 
served, the "bends" are rare, but 
all compressed air work'~rs are 
liable to an attack at apy hour of 
the day or night. In all the con- 
struction activities of the Port of 
New York Aiithorlf y, including the 
George Washington bridge, the 
Holland Tunnel, and tbfr sub- 
aqneoiis work done by the Board 
of Transportation in the building 
of the tunnels for the New York 
subways, there have been only 
1,914 cases of bends and just two 
fatalities out of a total of 3,12t,510 
decompressions. But the ever- 
present hazard accounts for the 
high wages which look so attractive 
at first glance. 

Short periods of work under com-

caase of the danger of taking an 
excess amount of nitrogen In solu-

Despite all precautions, however,

Passing through Roen<*e on

opinion that the Federal Govern-

verse the process and do some- 
thing to iH-otect the wet States 
from the dry ones. He proceeded 
to explain thi?ii6velvlHW'ijy Trail-

greatest bootleg problem which 
Virginia faces today is that of 
illicit liquor brought across the

compete with the stock of liquor

of Virginia. 

Just how much illicit liquor is 
being brought from North Caro-

to paying the higher prices asked 
for legal Uquor Mr. Frazier did

BANKING at one time was a pri- 
vate business, but more recently 
has developed Into a profession -a 
semi-public pro- 
fession. This 
change has not 
come suddenly 
but Is the result 
of an evolution 
ary pro res s. 
Banking has 
grown and 
changed with 
the growth and 
change of our 

The banker 
who has , sur- 
vived the 'trials 
and tribulations 
of the past few years has proven 
himself a man of courage and abill 
ty, and we may well expect him to 
meet the problems that lie before 
him with resolution and sound 

Unfortunately It has become the 
'.ttshion to blame on pur banking sys- 
tem all the troubles which the de- 
pression has broiight As a conse 
qUence we hear much of needed re 
form ot bankinyny law. No one wilt 
deny that certain defects have de^ 
valoped In our existing banking laws 
which need correction, and that cer 
tain abuses were tu^mmltted which 
ao one wishes to defend or have re- 
main possible In the future. Never 
oetore were bankers more deter- 
mined than they are today to bring 
•bout whatever changes In our banh 
ing system are called for by the 
pnblic welfare. 

Tbe Ba^is ol Good Lswt 
The best results can and will be 
sccompllshed by normal processes 
and gradual adjusttnents of our pres 
«nt pi4vate banking structure suit 
ably supervised by proper authority 
—rather than by the passage of still 
more drastic la'^s. offering panaceas 
U) the form of more government 
owned or government-controlled 
Cnanclal organizations. —»„

oiled In the rough school of practn-al 
Buman etperlence and are usually 
the result of sound evolutlonnry 
processes rather than of sudden im 
^Ises to change fundamental prtn 

If wa analyse the new b.anklng 
picture which has developed dui^hg 
the past eighteen months, we can 
not help but arrive at the concla- 
•loa ttiat evolutionary chauRos 
which have taken place In banking 
and the ecoBMnIc life of the nation 
et ««lcfe It is a pan. hav* laatlfled 

cently passed. As we look ahead an 
consider the new problems whlctt 
are facing us we must Inevitably 
come to tbe conclusion that some 
further changes in our banking laws 
will become necessary. 

Voluntary Reform 

It Is not enough that bankers 
merely acquiesce in banking Im- 
posed by law. Zeal for evolutionary 
banking reform must be more ag- 
gressive than that Banking prac- 
tice I itself, without compulslpn ot 
law. can and should redect the 
changes and lessons of the times and 
difficulties through which the nation 
lias passed and, even to a greater 
extent than, law, render banking 
more truly a good p,ubli9 servant by 
voluntary self-reform. In no small 
measure Is this accomplished by the 
better training of the members of 
the banking fraternity and by In- 
stilling constantly higher ideals In 
those who are ultimately responsible 
for bank management. 

As we march on Into the world ot 
tomorrow the banker has a greater 
opportunity for usefulness than o*'er 
before, and I hope that the se.'vlce 
he will render to society will be so 
conscientious, so constriiclti'B and 
BO sa'tisfactory as to merit general 
approval and assure lilm his logical, 
high place and leadership. 



^BVV YORK.- The annual sav- 
ings compilation of the American 
Bankers Association tor tbe year 
ending June 30. 1!>34, shows that for 
the ttrst time since 1930 total sav

an annual increase. 

A statement by W. Bspey Alblg.

In charge of Its Savings Ui vision. 
In the organization's monthly maga-

pared with a year Mirller. \ 

"Tbe aggregate l»s an increase 
over last year of $742,132,000. the 
first since the year which closed 
June 30. 1930," be says. "This Is a 
notable achievement, for the dMiine 
since 1930 had been precipitate and 
all-embracing. In that year savings 
had reached the all-time high of 128.

Second — 

The neccs^ty for an expediraicy 
of annexation are as f<dlows; 

(a) The present limits of the 
Town of Virginis Beach ar« too 
much ctmtraeted, particularly 
with respect to the water frtmtage 
thereof, resulting in crowded and 
congested conditi(sis in the water 
front sections of the Town, whicly 
secticms are the principal requis- 
ites for the development of the 
Town; building lots required for 
jaaiflenc^ are^_ a^arce, 




WHEREAS, it is deemed desir- 
able by the Town of Virginia 
Beach to annex certain territory 
lying in the County of Princess 
iifiretpaf ter :^esctibfid - by 
i'meftes and bounds; 

ORDAlN£n3 by the Council of the 
Town of Vir^ lia Beach— ^ 
Fitst — 
— That it desires to annex to the 
Town ^ Virginia Beach the terri- 
tory now lying in the County of 
Princess Anne and described by 
metes and bounds as, fellows: 

ALL that certain tract of land, 
lying, situate ahd being in Lynn- 
haven Magisterial District In the 
County of Princess Anne, between 
the present Northern boundary of 
the corjporate limits of the Town 
of Virginia Beach and the present 
douthem boundary of the United 
State Qovemment Reservation at 
Cape Henry, more particularly 
bounded and described as follows: 
BIOINNINO at a point dn the 
Bast«m shore of Crystal Lake, at 
tiie Northwestern Umlts of the 
present territory within the Town; 
thence following the Eastern 
shore of Crystal Lake In a North - 
•rly direction to its intersection 
with the Southern line of thr 
property of M^ury Corporation; 
thence in an Easterly direction 
along said Southern line of the 
property of Masury Corporation 
as shown on the Plat of "Uber- 
meer," and recorded in the Clerk's 
office of the Circuit Court of 
Princess Anne County, to a point 
where said Southern line of the 
property of Masury Corporation 
intersects the Western line of 
Roily Boulevard, as shown on said 
Mat; thence in a Northeasterly 
dhection alcng the Western line 
of Hotly Boulevard as shown on 
aald Plat of "Ubermeer" to Its in- 
tersection with the Western line 
of Holly Avenue; thence in a 
Mbrtherly direction altmg the 
Western line qf Holly Avenue, as 
shown on said Plat, to the South- 
ern line of the property of Oordan 
* Hume platted and described as 
'*'Ntw Virginia Beach, Sectltm 2"; 
mce in a general Northerly dir- 
thm along the Western line of 
ttee platted property of QkM^an A 
Hume, known as "New Virginia 
Iteach, No. 2 ", and crossing all 
streets i^own on said plat to the 
Southern boundary line of the 
cape Henry Syndicate property 
where it intersects the Western 
lipe of Holly Avenue as shown on 
'^ Mat of "Section E, property

and such lots as now remain un- 
impro;ved sell f(H" such prices as 
to put it beyond the power of the 
citizens of average means to pur- 
chase and build. This r^ults in 
excluding from the town many 
desirable citizens, and makes 
crowded and congested conditkms, 
particularly in the summer sea- 
sons, resulting ■ in undiily" high 
rents and congested living condi- 
tions, which are fast becoming 

(b) That a lafge portion of the 
territory above described, and 
which it is^ desired to annex, is 
laid put into building lots for 
residential purposes, and its im- 
provement to a large extent is 
due to the overgrowth of the 
Town of Virginia Beach. In much 
of said territory the hodses are 
compactly built, presenting the 
appearance of a town, and as a 
whole contain a populaticm equal 
to if not in excess of that re- 
quired by our State CMistitution 
for the formation of a town. With 
such conditions and populations 
county governments are not ex- 
pected to deal; they can and 
should be maintained, martaged 
and controlled by municipal au- 
thority. -^:;AJBrgeiportiQaiel^he. 
remainder pf such territory is, by 
reason of its locatiop and the fact 
of its having been laid out into 
lots and streets, adapted to city 
improvements, so as to afford 
cheap and desirable locations for 
the erection of commodious, 
healthful and beautiful residences, 

(c) That the present and pro- 
spective systems of public im- 
provement of the Town of Vlr- 
ginit Beach, such as the establish- 
ment of the width and grades of 
streets and alleys,^the plans and 
construction of sewers, culverts, 
drains, water and gas mains may 
be designed, adjusted and made 
so as to avoid unnecessary annoy- 
ance and damage necessarily oc- 
curring where property is built 
upon and developed before such 
systems are designed, adjusted 
and made. 

<d) The fact that a large part 
of the territory proposed to be 
annexed Is already built upon and 
Is furnished with water supply by 
the Town, and in the remainder 
of said territory there are many 
buildings without water supply, 
makes it not only expedient, but 
necessary, that some complete 
system of water supply be pro- 
vided for the public health In, and 
Improvement of said territory. 

<e) That the territory desired 
to be annexed is the natural out- 
et for the progress, development 
and growth of the Town of Vir- 
ginia Beach. Many of the better 
class of residences are the houses 
of former citizens of Virginia, 

(f) That the territory proposed 
to be annexed requires better 
police and firfe protection than 
the County of Princess Anne Is 
enabled by the means at its com- 
mand and under Its "system of 

iflB or emtitd cf mosQuftoest both 
<» ei»if <vt and otfe^, ami in ttie 
territory proposed to be annexed 
there are substantial areas in 
^Miicb these p«tts ate acct^tomed 
to mitftiply, to the detriment <^ 
the populaltion of the Town. As 
te^these areas little or no treat- 
ment is now afforded save by the 
effM^s and at the instance of the 
Town, and in these areas bettSer 
drainage eokI more scientific 
treatment is required for the 
health of the p(H>ulati<Hi within, 
as well as that with(Mit the Town, 
(h) That the Governmental 
machinery <^ a county, which is 
api»^9riate for a rural commun- 
H y , c annot su cces sfu l ly co pe wt th^- 
the situation in said territory. Our; 
system of gospemment for counties 
Is inteitded to govern counties and 
not towns, and a large part of 
said territory practically consti- 
tutes a town. V , 


The terms and conditions upon 
which it is desired to annex said 
territory, as well as the provisi<^s 
which are made for its future 
management and itiiprovement, 
are as follows: 

<a) That the Town of Virginia 
Beach shall assume and i«t)vid« 
for the reimbursement to the 
County of Princess Anne of such 
just proportion of any -existing 
debt of said county, or district 
therein, Jf any there be.Etnd for 
the then value of such permanent 
public improvements as may have 
been made in the territory pro- 
posed to be annexed, either by 
way of macadamizing public roads 
or streets, or by way of the con- 
struction of concrete roads or 
streets, or otherwise permanently 
improving roads or streets, or by 
constructing concrete sidewalks on 
public roads or streets, or%y con- 
structing or laying water mains

oysters are In season, for the 
oyster is one of those convenient 
foods which can be served In an al- 
most Infinite variety ot tempting 
forms. ■ 

Fried oysters are an American 
Institution, .but Ann Harding, the 
lovely star of to many notable film 
and stage successes, offers a new 
method of preparing them, and I 
win venfiire to say that yoa have 
never tasted fried oysters at tbeir 
best nntll you bite into the 
crisp cmnchiness ot the lucculent 
bivalves prepared by her method 
which employs crushed corn flaked 
in place ot bread crambs.

Select the largest oysters obtain- 
able. Wash them carefully In their 
own liquor;, pat dry Ip a cloth, 
then dip Into the egg, which has 
been beaten witli tw.o tablespoons 
of milk; next dip into the crushed 
corn flakes. Season w(th celery 
salt, salt, pepper and paprika. Let 
stand for half an hour In the re- 
frigerator; then redip in the egg 
and crushed corn flakes and fry In 
deep fat until a golden brown. It 
you use a frying thermometer, it 
should register 375° F. Serve plala 
or with tartare, or hollandalae

That Period. 

Last Sunday was the fifth an-; 

niversary of Rev. Reginald W. 

Eastman's service '> at Oalilee 

Five years ago Mr. -Eastman

man remarked this week, the 
Sunday school enrollment at 
Galilee has increased from about 
40 to more than 100 and about 
45 new communicants have, been 
admitted to membership in the 
church. Interest in the Woman's 
Auxiliary has shown marked im. 
provement over the period, the 
attendance af n^jeetlngs.sow aver-, 
aging 25 or more as. against five 
to ten. 

"I feel that these have been 
profitable years," said Mr. East- 
man, "and certainly they have 
been pleasant years." 

The rector paid tribute to the 
assistance which he has received 
l^m the vestry and from many 
others connected with the opera- 
tion of various departments of the 
church, among thefti Mrs. John

New Radio Store

Eqoipfied Sh^. 

A. J. Kodis, veteran. Beach radio 
dealer, today is ojpei^ng a new 
and attractive display room in the 
Roland Court, 17th street, where 
all models of Phiico radio re- 
ceivers will be demonstrated. 

A pkrt of the new Kodis store, 
which was formerly the office of 
Smith [and Gustafson, will be used 

as a 
atus. He 
years expe 
has m<

radio ailments. 

He has been in radio business 
here for four years and has sold 
Phiico receivers exclusively for 
two. years, believing that Phiico 
equipment offers the best value 
among the first-quality makes. 
Prior to coming here Mr. Kodis 
was a radio operator and co-pilot 
on passenger planes on the 
MiamtiiSeu th Am e r ica route, imd 
before that, for twenty years, was 
in the navy. During much of his 
navy service he was ei^aged In 
installing radio equipment on 
planes. He retired from the navy 
as an aviation chief machinist 

For tluei^ years while in the 
navy S^rTJ^iis was a member of 
the xtewsj>f the dirigibles Los 
Angeles and Shenandoah and of 
the force which cared for them 
at Lakehurst, N. J. He made 
many dirigible and plane flights 
but was never in a smash. He 
was sick with influenza when the 
Shenandoah tragedy occurred. 
But for that illness he might not 
be selling radios. 

The navy made good its promise 
to show Chief Kodis the world. 
He probably has seen as much of 
it as any person living in this sec-

in China and he served at Quam 
and in the Philippines.

Judge White haa been aproach- 
ed by Town- Attorney Willard 

Ashburn regarding calling the 
election and has said, Mr. Ash- 
burn told the councilmen Monday 
night, Jihat if council' approved 
the ordinance on second reading 
on Friday night that he would 
sign the order for the election on 
Saturday, if all was in order. 
CMincii Fot Haste 

The councilmen were for hold- 
ings two meetings on Monday 
nighty passing the ordinance on 
first leading at the first meeting 
and on second reading at the 
second meeting but Mr. Ashburn 
said that that wouldn't be legal, 
that the meetings must be spaced 
at least three days. 

To meet interest and amortiza- 
tion charges on the $124,000 to be 
borrowed from the government it 
is provided in the ordinance that 
the monthly service charge to 
water consumers ("ready to serve 
charge"), now $2.50, be raised to 
$2.75 and that the charge for 
water, over the first 5000 gallons 
consumed per mbnth, be raised, 
ten cents per 1000 gallons. The 
revenue from watfer will be ear- 
marked to the PWA's account. 
That is provided in the ordinance 
approved on Monday night and 
the town also proposes to raise the 
real estate levy from $2.40 to $2.70 
per $1000 of asMssment to make 
up for the loss of water revenue. 

This plan of financing was de- 
termined upon some time ago 
after the councilmen dropped 
their original plan of a toilet tax 
when they found that there was 
general opposition to such a tax.

a shake-up might come when sev-

have been no changes yet at Cape

Both the park foremen ^nd the 
pfflcera of the two CCC i^<f^ip>niAa 
at Fort Story, which are working 
on the park, ar^clotely followuig 
developments in congress con- 
cerning the CCC, for they may 
bear dta^tly upon ttu* Cape Henrn' 
work. The administration's plan 
is to expand the CCC. If con- 
gress approves it is considered 
likely here that work in the park 
will be carried on actively after 
April 1, the date upon which the 
park is iBcheduled to he opened to 
the public. 

Fort Wants Labor 

The News has heard, however, 
that the State has requested that 
only one company be assigned to 
the Cape Henry park after April 
1. However. FOrt Story and the 
State military authorities, it is 
understood, have asked that the 
second company be kept at Fort 
Story after April 1 for work at 
the Fort on sand fixation and for 
clearing brush at the Virginia 
Beach rifle range. If this request 
is approved there may be no de- 
crease in CCC manpower at Fort 
Story after April 1 and there may 
be somfB increase, Inasmuch as it 
is rumored that the sIot of CCC 
companies is to be increased. The 
assignment of one of the FV)rt 
Stocy companies 44} work. - x^het 
than on the State park might, 
however, bring a reduction in the 
number of foremen employed on 
the park project.

Farmers of America was planned 
by members of the Oceana, 
Kempsvflle. Great Bridge and 
Hickory chapters of the organ- 
ization at KempsvUle high school 
on Monday night. 

About seventy students of voca- 
tional agriculture from the four 
diapters attended the meeting, 
the Kempsvllle chapter being host 
&M taking Charge of the meeting. 

The federation plan was pre- 
sented by M. B. FusseU, advl^r of 
the Great Bridge chapter. It was 
discussed and was approved as a 
step likely to promote closer 
friendship between the member- 
ship of the four organizations now 
and in later years. Two repre- 
sentatives from each chapter were, 
appointed as an executive com- 
mittee to make plans for the fed- 
eration. A father and son ban- 
quet, which probably will be held 
this spring, was discussed. 

After the business there was a 
short badcetball tournament^ won- 

Advisors Fussell, R. L. Waring 
and W. H, McCann will meet with 
the federation executive commit- 
tee on Monday. January 28.

Co n tf pi Program 
Likely, Thinks Etheridge 

Back Bay Man Tells of Com- 
mittee Recommendations 
Made At Washington Meet- 
ing Last Week. 

That congress will make pota- 
toes a' basic commodity and that 
acreage wiU be allotted to farmers 
as cotton acreage is allotted un- 
der the Bankhead Act. is the be- 
lief of R. T. Etheridge. of Back 
Bay, who attended the sessions of 
the Potato Advisory Committee 
at Washington on Friday and 
Saturday of last week. Mr. Ethe- 
ridge is one of the three ^^rgin- 
ians on the committee. 

The (wmmittee recommen<ted 
that potatoes be made a basic 
commodity and Reineseatetlve 
Undsey Warren, of North Caro- 
lina, who WiU introduce the bill 
In the Hmise, belteves it wiD pais; 

IhidMr the committee's iriui no 
boi^t payments will be given. 

"Everybody was oppoMd to 
ttwm" said Mr. Btherldge. 

The act, as recMnamided. would 
be In effect thirty di^ after pas- 
sage. The allotaient of ^itb state 
would be based «i its av««ge pn>- 
di»;U<ai over the last five

tew whldi have made iKinon al- 
1lH noetMry <rf Agrl- 
n flva uaXbamr 

to determine the countrywide pro- 
duction. It is his idea. Mr. Ethe- 
ridge understands, to bring the 
price of potatoes up to jBO cents a 
bushel, or $2.40 a barreil, and the 
A. A. A. believes that national 
production would have to be cut 
one-third in order to accomplish 

Ihe ciHnmittee rectnnmended 
that the bill provide for a refere- 
dum, slmiliar to the Bankhead Act 
referendum, after the plan has 
been in effect a year. 

The committee recomm«ided 
that two per cent of the natfamal 
allotment be set aside to tidce 
care oi new piHato farmers and 
new potato distrtets. 

"With luck that bill m^t pan 
ctmiress wiOiin the next SO days 
and it might be a material factor 
tttls year." said Mr. Etlmrti!^. 

Mr. Etheridge believea that 
Princeas Anne will cut potato 
acreage one-third thto year. Guy

"It will be noted from the fore- 
going summary that the town 
failed to provide for its estimated 
budget expenditures by the 
amount of $8,096 and that a like 
amount of the school revenue was 
used In order to balance the gen- 
eral fund budget. It will be fur- 
ther noted that the actual expen- 
ditures of the general or operat- 
ing fund exceeded the actual rev- 
enue in the amount of $9,244.73. 
However, taking into .ponsidera- 
tion the excess school revenue of 
$15,640.56, the town showed excess 
revenue over all expenditures of 
$6,395.83 for the year ended Aug. 
ust 31, 1934. ' I 

"It is not believed that school 
fund revenues should be used for 
general fund expenditures and it 
will, therefore, be nccssary to ta- 
crease the general fund revenue 
or to decrease the expenditures, 
in order to place the (Operation of 
the town on a sound basis." 

The auditors note that during 
the fiscal year the sinking fund 
commissioners purchased for thi 
sinking fund account bonds of the 
town of a par value of $4000 but ^ 
comment that the town is far be- 
hind with its sinking fund pay- 
menti. JOn Augustaix 1834, the 
general fund owed the sinking 
fund $35,475.17. 

"Attention is directed to the 
fact," wft)te the auditors, "that the 
town has not paid over to the 
sinking fund commission any 
funds for the past three years and 
that the annual Installment of 
$12,000 which was previously paid 
is insufficient to retire the b<mds 
at maturity." 

The next maturity of Beach 
bond occurs on February I, 1987. 
when $47,000 in bonds are due. 
After that no more txmds of the 
town mature until 1047.

pose to hold a town meeting to 
ten citizens all about the plan to 
secure funds from the Public 
Works Administration for sewer- 
age. Improvement. That appeals. 
to the News as both a good course 
and a necessary course — ^necessary, 
because, to borrow the inoiiey, the 
approval of a majority of the 
Qualified voters of the town must 
he secured and It is difficult to 
get people to vote when there are 
no rival candidates to stir them 
up.^ It is notorious that in this 
country voters will turn out in 
large numbers when two office- 
.jeekers are fighting for a plcay- 
iine public Job whUe bond issues 
ttinning into the millions of dol- 
Um are often approved, or reject- 
4d. by a handful of voters. 

In the present case the town 
•dmlnistration may be hard put 
|o it to get out a vote large enough 
io carry the proposal because it is 
Silanned to hold the election at 
the time of year when the Beach's 
population is lowest. Scores of 
qualified Beach voters are in 
Vlorida, or elsewhere, for the win- 
ter and it may be difficalt lo in- 
duce them to vote by mail. The 
election cannot be postponed un- 
til summer if the town is to enjoy 
the use this season of the modem 
disposal plant the councihnen 
ihop^ to provide with the federal 

■The mass meeting will undoubt- 
edly create interest in the pro- 
posed improvement and it should 
materially lessen the difficulty of 
securing the requii-ed number of 
votes. Apart from that the plan 
Is commendable because of the 
hnportance of the matter to be 
discussed. Not only does Virginia 
Beach require better equipment 
hut Jthe town' purposes,, in order 
to obtain them, to borf&w nearly 
$50 per capita. $250 per family, 
and a borrowipg of that magni- 
tude warrants the serious thought 
of every resident of the commv.n- 

Such mass meetings as it is 
Iritenned to hold in connection 
with the PWA loan might well be 
held here two or three times a 
year, in this paper's opinion, to 
acquaint people with the com- 
munity's problems, get their Ideas 
as to what should be done that isn't 
toeing done and as to what things, 
being done, are unnecessary. The 
Mew England town meeting sys- 
tem ol government has its points 
and Virgmia Beach isn't so large 
a pla(» that all hands could not 
fee assembled occasionally for a 
^bKnisslon. of the town's business.

Florida is concerned over a re- 
cent murder at Miami because it 
was executed in typical Chicago 
racketeer style and apparently by 
northern gangsters. Governor 
ShoRz shouts that that sort of 
thing won't be permitted in his 
state. "We are going to run them 
out before they get a foothold In 

Things have changed somewhat 
down that way, it appears. It has 
not been many years since AL 
Capone, t^en Our most publicized 
citizen, tpok refuge in Miami, and 
Miami, It will be recalled, didn't 
seem to object. Capone threw 
parties attended by many of the 
leading figures of the town. Miami 
seemed glad to have Capone, be- 
cause Capone put Miami on the 
front page. It is only, apparently, 
when gangsters having no public- 
ity value begin to ^ut up that 
Florida gets worried. 

This pftper suggests that Miami 
is likely to draw racketeers just so 
long as it welcomes rackets, j)artl- 
cularly dog tracks. It's the easy, 
sucker money in gambling 
schemes, now that bootlegging 
isn't what it used to be, that feeds 
criminals of the Al Capone stamp. 
When Miami calls a halt on de- 
vices to strip the sucker. It will 
have less trouble with racketeers. 
And that Is one of the reasons 

why this paper shed no teara.nam, where they put Humpty 
when the legislature refused last ! ©umpty together again. Tffls de- 
year to legalize horse racing injpartment two or three years later

happily, has not yet had to con

department to remain on the 
ship, which was to load for Ger- 
many. This department gave the 
proposal grave conslderatlonj'put 
finally, for no good reason, left

weather, in the North Sea, hit a 
mine which the Armistice hadn't , 
exploded. Of tho^r^^ 45^rf»ou4?l''"^. ^^°"'^ be above the size of

The Liberty Olo's accident had 
a .curious aftermath. The ship

the bulkheads field and the halves 
of the ship went ashore on the. 
Dutch coast, the skipper being 
alone in the storm on one of them 
for three days and nights. They 
stranded some miles apart and 
Dutch salvagers hauled both, of 
them off. towed them to Rotter-

Readers Write 

iSditor, Virginia Beach News: 

In irour issue of last week you 
had a headline, "Woman Attacks 
Blll!>oard8," and below it dhere 
was seemingly an argiunent for a 
statie tax on billboards as a source 
of revenue* 

— If this tax~wB5 'mS<f e so^BlglT 
that It would cause all large bill- 
boards to come down it might bo 
a good Idea but a tax which will 
be paid and therefore condone 
these monstrosities should never 
be imposed.' 

So far as Virginia Beach is con- 
cerned we should consider that 
enue ,the inhabitants- and the 
tourists. Qill^ards are not all 
bad. Some are very helpful to a 
tourist and should be permitted. 

the new ones on the boulevard, as 
these can be read by" any driver 
at any speed. Excess in size 
simply annoys people, and r\|lns 
the looks of the roadway. 

Bill boards should 'be divided 
Intd classes: 1. those that help the 
tourist. 2. those intended for local 
consumption. 3, Those that can 
by no possibility help any one, in 
shopping or otherwise. 

One large board carries this 
sign, vi'Watch the Posters." I be- 
lieve this Is a valuable hint so I 
made a survey beginning a little 
way out where the tourist would 
naturally begin to look for local 
signs. First, I will list the enor- 
mous signs that have no possible 
excuse for being. A septic tank. 
Now this sign is of no use to a 
tourist and a local plumber who 
is called knows all about septic 
tanks and where to get them. 

Boar's Head Ale. Who will 
change his drink because he saw 
a billboard? Cocoa Cola the. same. 
Camels, Chesterfields, etc. Im- 
'agine a smoker who calls for a 
different brand because of these 
ads. Three or four scabby ones 
that have evidently not paid the 
rent. Then Seaboard Bank. Who 
but a moron would connect his 
bank affiliation through a bill- 
board. Arrow beer. Certainly a 
fifteen-foot bottle Is not needed. 
Oj^ter .roasts. These are all right 
except size. Fuel. Feed and Build- 
ing Supplies. Tourists will not 
trade with them and the local 
people do not need this sign. Pine- 
wood, MarUia Washington, etc. 
*rhese are too large. A small one 
W&uld do Just as well. How much 
influence would a cockeyed coffee 
pot advertising Old Point have on 
a man travelling to or from Vir-

The schooner was the James E,

Norfolk, slightly damaged, about 
fifteen years ago, after having 
been agrpund off Cape Lookout, 
n Carolina. She hit the outer 
shoal at Lookout at night in thick g^nia Beach? 
weather, with a strong wind blow- ' As an example of a decent sign 
ing and pounded so badly that it | note the Cavalier Hotel direction 
appeared she would break up be- pointer near London Bridge, 
fore morning. So all hands, and , Right near It is o&e of the worst, 
the captain's wife, put off in the I Paul and Dlx-Bowers. They nOt 
small boat and got ashore, SMne only put up an enormous sign but 

of ttiem half drowned. But the 
James B. Newsom didn't break up, 
she worked herself off the reef 
and, with full canvas on, paraded 
up and down off Lookout, going 
eleven knots ot better, for several 
hours While the Lo<Aout Coast

How^ear to my heart is the farm 
I and the pleasures 
t loved as a child when I roam-

The old red-roofed bam*«rith the 
loft and its treasures, 
The dear, tiunbted cottage tuck-

The Uttle, brown cot where 1 lay

The gay patch-work quilt and the

But dearest /Of all is the goose-

Though coldly it blustered,

I cuddled content in a nest of 
I seek the world o'er but I'll never

days that are dead; 
The warmth-dreamy sweetness,

Then drejims were so rosy. 
Inspired by the dozy, 
Consoling and cozy,

a reason. Many of them buy 
their supplies hi | a way that Is 
fatal to their success; they seem 
to have been reduced to that nec- 
essity. Potato farming is no 
chance business; the element of 
luck does not figure in the equas- 
lon— a potato farmer, like every 
other business man, must do his 
own thinking; if some one else is 
left to do his thinking for him, 
the other fellow will very probably 
think of a way to get the big end 
of, if not all the farmer makes; 
'such at least has been the experi- 
ence of the past. Farmers should 
"mind their step" in going into 
anything that savors of govern- 
ment control, or any other form 
of control save self -control, or 
they may find tp their sorrow that 
they parted with their freedom

Luigi Pirandello has caused a 
stir by winnlDg the Nobel Prize 
in literature, and hte new book 
of Short stories, "Better Think 
Twice About It," is carasing a stir 
fOT the same reason. It is useless 
to try to undisntand anything 
that the. "Italian a. S. Shaw" has 
<|one, or is doing, unless his meta- 
physical wanderings into the 
realms of personality are taken 
into account. He is dedicated to 
the thesis that one person is the 
reflection of many personalities, 
and given over to speculation 
thereat, witness "As You Desire 
Me" and "One; None and a Hun- 
dred Thousand." In addition, he 
seems to find some grotesque, gig- 
antic laughter of his own. "Better 
Think Twice About It" bears out 
all that has been said or "dis- 
covered" of Pirandella. The ttiir- 
teen stories are preoccupied with 
his paramount problem, his love 
of the paradoxical, and the per- 
versity, even cruelty, of life. The 
characters are mainly the peasan- 
try of his native Sicily; Plran- 
tWh>*^"^heme ^fr worked 
through people who exude the

that the members of this organ-

This reporter saundered up , a 
curving path which led through 
magnificently land^ped grounds. 
In a semi-circle were grouped 
great new buildings of, red brick 
and which stone, constructed 
after the colonial (Oeorglan) 
* style. Between tiiem could be 
caught glimpses of the placid 
Tliamfs river in the background. 
The solemn notes of a big Clock 
drifted across the grounds. With 
the exception of the sentry and 
the reporter, there was not a hu- 
man being In sight. 
Recollecting that these were the 
,4J^-^Christmas holidays and ttiat the 
students undoubtedly were ab- 
sent, this reporter arrived at the 
Administration building. Enter- 
mg, he finially located a young 
man, nodding at a switchboard, 
and was directed jto the office of 
tHi> secretary to Capt. Randolph 
Rldgdy Jr., superintendent of the 
academy. Some time later, Capt. 
Rldgely was located. 


It was verified that most of the 
students' were absent. But even a 
thousuid students might have 
been lost in that imposing array 
of buildings. At the present time, 
exactly 158 young men, divided 
torn ciisses_ averaging less 
y than forty each, are taking the 
four year course. After that they/

ed amidst appropriate ceremonies. 
At that timef^^ coast guard en- 

It had 12,000 enjteted men and jtour s tudents jeach.aowhousi ni 

600 officers. Its appropriation 
was cut $5,000,000 last year and 
will be Slashed another 2,500,000 
this year. That means the dis- 
charge of MO more men and the 
decommissioning of many units. 
LargCT CJasses Phumed 

When built, the academy was 
designed to acc(Mnmodate 208 stu- 
dents, with an eventual expansion 
to a capacity of about 338. With 
its present membership of 158, it 
is one of the most exclusive 
schools in New England and the 
diminishing student group lives 
royally in what is probably the 
most modem and best equipped 
institution in the country. 

Admitting all these points sad- 
ly, Capt. Rldgely nevertheless 
bristles at the suggestion, madie 
in naval circles, that coast guard 
officers should be trained in the 
naval academy at Annapolis. 

"It wouldn't do," he said firmly. 
"It would be bad for morale. Our 
training course calls foj seaman- 
ship ot the highest order. I'd hate 
to ask a naval academy graduate 
to command the, launching of a' 
life boat in a heavy sea. Probably 
th e boat and a coupl e of m e n 
would be lost."

Fine Swimming Pool 

The gymnasiiun, called the 
finest in New England, held a 
magnificent tiled swimming pool. 
There was a fine athletic field, 
equipped with floodlights for 
night playing and a modem grand 
stand. There was a concrete tun- 
nel connecting all the main build- 
ings so that the students need 
not be exposed to the snow and 
cold if they .do not wish. 

There was gentle melancholy 
noticeable in the few persons en- 
countered in this inspection. This 
was an instituticm inspired by the 
great days of the coast guard, the 
heroic days of the rum running 
fleet off the 14 mile limit, the 
days of battles on the Great Lakes 
and around Detroit. Now, re-

life saving and marine patroling.

atete as a whole, the problem of 
Munty government reorganiza- 
Um "R probably the question now 
~ most in need of general attention. 
mth governmental functions and 
tmi constantly expanding, the 
Qoestioh of governmental effic- 
iency Mid economy is one of con- 
s»antly increasing importance. 
Many counties are now receiving 
state or federal aid for schools for 
relief of dependent groups and for 
other purposes. Until they have 
exhausted the possibilities of self 
help they do not have as strong a 
case for the continuance of such 

County government recn-ganiza- 
tkm needs to be pushed f rom^twa 
anglefs, (1) the reorganization of 
«dsting govemtoentaL majdiinery 
to improve efficiency; and (2) the 
consolidation of counties when 
they fall below a certain minimum 
of are.a, population and resources. 
ITie county government commis- 
sion conservatively estimates that 
more than a million dollars a year 
could be saved to the people of the 
state through such reforms with 
at the same time an actual im- 
provement in county government 


State Printer, Richmond,) cover- 
ing the year ending June 30, 1932, 
shows a wide variation between 
different ctmnUes in the cost of 
various governmental functions. 
Such figures suggest the need of 
examining into the desirability oi 
county government reorganiza- 
tion. For Instance, the total per 
capita county expenditures and 
other charges varied in 1932 from 
$9.44 in Qt^^fSqtC^ $25.61 in 

In Princess Anne c^jl^ty, total 
expenditures and fitist amounted 
in 1932 to $22.27/per capita, 25.8 
per cent of whicn came fijom the 
state. The cos^ of the commis- 
sioner of revenue office for the 
county was 33 cents per capita 
as conipared to 55 cehts~f6r the 
high-cost county, and 9 cents for 
tire low-cost^ county. Princess 
Anne county 'spent 87 cents per 
capita on its treasurer's office. 
The cost Qf such services in other 
counties ranged from 22 to 98 
cents per capita. The cost of oper- 
ating the county clerk's office, 
amounted to 11 cents per, capita 
as compared to a range in othc^r 
counties from 3 to 16 c^ntsL 3rhe 

Albemarle and Henrico counties 
led the way last year in such/re- 
organiaation. fSulBstanJiialraViaii 
have been idade with liicreaara 
efficiency in the performance of 
various govenmiental functions. 
!■ Itenrico a reduction of 26 per 
cent in the general county levy is 
credited to the reorganizatidn 
while in Albemarle a saving of 
japproximately 30 per cent In the 
general county administration 
cost has resulted. This amounts 
to more than 110,000. In both 
counties the greatest saving has 
eome tiirough combining the of- 
fices of tte commissioner ot rev- 
pam hitd tm fu H Ha\u a -Ttet>«rii- 
iMBt Gt (inanM. The director of 
this departm^it in both cages 
Merves as head of the coun^ gov- 

cost of crime prevention and de 
tectlon ran from a low of 3 cents, 
and of administrattp!! of Justice, 

9 cents, per capita to a high of 
$1.02 and 51 cents respectlveJbr. 
Such cost in Princess Anne coun- 
ty amount^ to 21 cents and 22' 
cents. This county spent 22 cents 
per capita for the protection of 
the health of its people and 2 
cents for the protection of live- 
stodc and fowls. For the advance- 
ment of agriculture and hoipe 
economics Princess Anne county 
spent 7 cents per capita as com- 
pared to a range from nothing to 

10 cents in other counties. (Arl- 
ington county Is not included In 
the above comparisons, since mo^ 
of its territory is sut^urban).

In many areas larger county

with a clean tens, plus proper exposure, you should always get tharp^ 
clear pictures such as the ones above. 


THE Guild has received a number 
of letters from fellow Bnapshoot- 
prs complaining about smudgy look- 
lag pictures. They say they know 
tkeir exposures are correct and de- 
veloping done Carefully with fresh, 
clean chemicals. 

Granting that all this Is true the 
■ext thing to consider Is your iens. 
h It clean? You have looked through 
dirty eye-gteBses with probably a 
lew anger prints on them. If you 
kaven't It's a sure bet that yon have 
«q^rtenced the difficulty of looking 
through a smudgy window. Clean 
eyeglasses and clean windows give 
clear vision and similarly the cam- 
ei», (»nnot "see" so well It its eye 
<the lens) is cloudy and smudgy 
Irom grease, finger prints and dust 
ejected bver a period of Aienths. 

Cleaning a lens is a very simple 
^Hratlon. All you need Is a soft, un- 
■tarched linen handkerchief and 
perhaps a match or pencil, if the

In the ox-cart, horse-back stage 
of develi^imient small coimty units 
were to some extent necessary and 
Justifiable. With modem methods 
of transportation this Is no longer 
true. Many small counties of the 
eastern part of the state are ac- 
counted for in part by the trans- 
portation difffculties of *he early 
days. Sectldnal rivalries and the 
struggle of the older sections of 
the East to hold the balance of 
pqwer in the legislative halls of a 
century and more ago whei| re-1 
presentation was by county tinits, 
was abo -an important factor. 
When a new county was created 
on the growing frontier one of the 
older counties was usually divided. 
Sentiment and vMted Interest now 
make it difflculmo make read- 
justments: Thttrw^ are now pay- 
ing for the political maneuverlngs 
of our great grandfathers, after 
such maneuverlngs have lost their 
significance for more than a cen- 

Larger units of government and 
a high level of efficiency in coun- 
ty governmental activities would 
enable many counties to have de- 
sirable public services which they 
now lack. The possibilities of 
making advances along other lines 
w6uld also be greatly promoted. 
Individuals and groups iiiterested 
in correcting the lags of the coun- 
ty can do no better, therefore, 
iiian work for the Improvement of 
county government. Information 
as to procedure can be obtained 
from the chairman of the County 
Government Commlssltm, Dr. Geo. 
Spicer, University of Virginia.

AN obiunance for the ex- 

raOVND MARCH lOTH, 1904, 

WHBBSiWB, it Is deemed desir- 
able by (he Town of Virginia 
Beach to annex certain territory 
lying in the County of Prinqess 
le, hereinafter described ^y 
^etes Mid bounds; 

ORDAINED by the Council of the 
Town (rf Virginia Beach— 

_ That it desires to annex to the 
Town of Virginia Beach the terr|- 
t<»y now lying In the County 6f 
Princess Anne and described by 
metes and bounds as follows: 

ALL ttiat celiain tract of land, 
lying, situate and being ixf Lynn- 
haven Magisterial District in the 
County of Princess Anne, between 
the present Northern boundary of 
the corporate limits of the Town 
of Virginia Beach and the present 
Southern boundary of the United 
State Oovemment Reservation at 
Cape Henry, more particularly 

knd makes 
crowded Mid cooMsted condltians, 
partteularly In the suinmer sea- 
sons, restdttng in unduly high 
rents and congested living condi- 
tions, which are fast bec<mdng 

(b) That a large portion of the 
territory above described, rad 
whkih It is desired to annex, is 
laid out Into building lots for 
r^idential purposes, and its im- 
provement to a large extoit is 
due io the overgrowth of the 
Town (tf Virginia Beach. In much 
>of said territory the houses are 
compactly built, presenting the 
appearance of a town, and as a 
whole contain a population equal 
to if not in excess of that re- 
quired by our State Constitution 
for the formation of a town. With 
such conditions and populations 
county goveminehts are not ex- 
pected to deal; they can and 
should be maintained, managed 
and contr(aTedHDy municipal au- 

managedient and Improvement, 
are as follows: 

(a) That the Town of Virghiia 
Beach Shan aisume and provide 
tor the reimbursement to the 
county of Princess Anne of siich 
just proportion of any existing 
debt of said county, or district 
therein, if anymore l>e, and for 
the then value of such permanent 
pubUc improvements as may have 
been made in the territory pro- 
posed to be annexed, either by 
way of macadamizing public roads 
or streets,' or by way of the con- 
struction Of concrete „roads or 
streets, or otherwise permanently 
improving roads or streets, or by 
constructing concrete sidewalks on 
public roads or streets, or by con- 
structing or laying water mains 
or sewers, garbage, disposal sys- 
tem, fire protection facilities, 
bridges ,or any other permanent 
public improvement constructed 

remainder of such territory is, by 
reason of its location and the fact 
of its having been laid out Into 
lots and streets, adapted to city 
Improvements, so as to afford 
cheap and desirable locations for 
the erMtlon of commodious, 
healthful «nd beauMful residences; 

(c) That the present and pro- 
spective systems of public im- 
provement of the Towh of Vir- 
gJ»ltBeach, such as the establish- 
ment of the width and grades of 
streets and alleys, the plans and 
construction of sewers, culverts, 
drains, water and gas n^alns may 
be designed, adjusted and made 
so as to avoid unnecessary annoy- 
ance and damage necessarily oc- 
curring where property is built 
upon and developed before such 
systems are designed, adjusted 
and made. 

(d) The fact that a large part 
of the territory proposed to be 
annexed is already built upon and 
is furnished with water supply by 

ttiorlty. Tsnargr^porttorr^f-the ^rannstntained ^ysalTcbunly at

vided Tof^TRe Town <^ ^nrgiriia

provided further, that the Town 
of Virginia Beach shall receive

determined by the Cqurt, tiff such 
sums, If any, as it may Tiave con- 
tributed to such pubUc improve- 
ments. And the Town of Virginia

compensation to the County of 
Princess Anne for the then value 
of any school house or other 
public building of said County 
located within the annexed terri- 
tory Which shaU not be reserved 
to the said County ki this pro- 
ceeding, and for the Injury to the

(b) That, except as hereinafter 
provided in clause (c) of this sec- 
tion, the tax rate upon the land

County of Princess Anne^ for its 
purposes at the time of 'annexa- 
tion under this ordinance for a 
period of five ye»rs after such an- 
nexation, u^cept upon the petition 
of a majorfty of the voters of such 
territory, presented to the Council 
of the Town of Virginia Beach. 

(c) That all revenues derived by 
the Town of Virginia Beach from 
taxation in said territory during 
a period of five years after such

from other sources, including lic- 
enses, shall be wholly expended by 
the TovtTi of Virginia. Beach upon 
the streets, sewers, light, water 
and other public improvements in 
said tenitory; provided, however, 
that at any time within the said 
five years the Council of the Town 
oi Virginia Beach may, by ordin- 
ance,, set apart a sum equal to 
twelve per centum of the assessed 
value at the time Of annexation

Tided for those hours of reading, sew- 
ing or just plain case. 

In nuuiy a spacious living room, and 
small ones also, the davenpcnt is placed 
alongside the hearth, as in the accom- 
panying sketch. Where ,diere is no 
fireplace the lamp appropriate for 
the awaytfrom-the-wall location is the 

Just one lamp stands byyflie daven- 
-port^n The^living f oonu illuslrafed: 
But you can bank on that one! It 
knows all the trirks of gobd lighting, 
having been bui!t according to speci- 
fications of the Illuminating Enginjier- 
ing Society* a national group of light- 
ing Scientists. 

You'll note first that the lamp is 
placed at the back of the davenport. 
This balanced arrangement is possible 
beeause ef 4he4ieigl^t of the lamp and 
the width of the shade which allow 
sufficient spread of light for the en- 
tire length of the davenport . . . John- 
nie won't be out of range of good light 
regardless of where he sits on this 

The reasons for the excellent light- 
ing are apparent when the shade is 
lifted, as illustrated in the .smaller 

The glass bowl between the candles 
throws light up as well as down, thus 

el|ninating glare and providing light 
a; restful to the eyes as an cider 
down mattress would be to the body. 
Within the bowl is another bit ol 
magic, an electric lamp, newly de- 
veloped, which (because of two fila- 
ments) gives three different intensities 
of light at the turn of a switch. For 
sewing and the reading of fine print 
for long periods, the lights of the 
auxiliary candles, holding bnlbs of 
from 40 to 60-watts, are added to that 
of the central bulb. 

"How about using a single lamp at 
the end of the davenpo rt, rather tha n 
at the 1)ack?,njear someone aSfc^ 
Well, that depends on your davenport 
if it is too long the lamp staixlard 
would have to be excessively and 
awkwardly high to shed its light tbe 
entire length. 

End table lamps can of course be 
used, but are npt always practical for 
the away-from-the-wall location in a 
smaller room where space must be 

If the davenport is of the Love Seat 
type, a lamp similar to the smaller one 
sketched, and using a 100-watt lamp, 
may be placed on a table behind it. 
"This is also an approved I. E. S.

of lovely designs for which have been

"Several of the leading hotels," 
said Mr. Porter, "are charging 
from $20 to $25 a day, minimum." 

Lmses For Cash 

With a good season anticipated, 
leases were made at top prices. 
Mr. Porter heard that the Plori- 
dian Hotel, which has 200 rooms, 
was leased for $70,000 for the sea- 

"Leases generally were made for 
cash, that Is, fuU payment by 
Janu ary 1." he explained. "The 
owners were net letting anyone 
deal on their money this seaeon. I 
was tempted to lease a hotel of 
about loi) Tooma but finaUy de- 
cided the price was too high. So 
Mrs. Porter and I came home to 
spend the remainder of the win-

Mr. Porter reported that W. H. 
Sterling, Jr., owner of the Princess 
Anne here, was doing weU with 
the smaU Miami hotel which he 
leased for two seasons. He is 
making most of the money out of 
the bar, however.

"For head bartender he has 
'Mother' Kelley, who used to tend 
bar in New York for Tex Guinan", 
said Mr. Porter. "Kelly seems to 
be drawing trade." 

Rorida recently legaUzed liquor. 

When things became bride a 
few weeks ago one of the Miami 
hotels, Mr. Porter relates, boosted 
its rates to the midwinter level 
and lost 175 guests In cme day. It 
didn't mind, however, because it 
promptly fiUed up again at the 
higher rates. 

"All places of unusement are 
crowded." said Ut. Porter.
